Raisin-Choc-Coconut Biscuits

IMG_3590

My sons have told me to only bake these biscuits and forget about all those other biscuits I used to make.

 So with such a big tick of approval, I thought I would share  the recipe from “Good Without Gluten”

Ingredients

100 g butter

220 g vergeoise sugar (substitute soft brown sugar)

1 egg

180 g gluten free flour

30 g almond meal

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

130 g raisins

125 g chocolate chips

125 g chopped walnuts

125 g desiccated coconut

Method

Preheat oven to 180C

Beat the butter with the sugar in a mixer until well combined.  Add the egg and mix well.

In another bowl, combine all the dry ingredients with the raisins, chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut.

Add these ingredients to the butter mix and combine well using a large spoon.

Make balls of dough (approx 20)(use an ice-cream scoop) and place the balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until the dough is firm.

Remove the tray from the refrigerator and place it straight into the oven.

Bake for 6 minutes, then turn the tray around and bake for 6 minutes more.

Once removed from the oven, let them cool on the tray.

 For a more consistently even biscuit, I use an egg ring and tamp the scoop of dough into the egg ring before placing in refrigerator.
