Coconut Biscuits

Makes 12

This cookie dough needs to be made in advance and chilled before using. Use straight from the fridge and watch biscuits emerge from the oven a short while later. Very useful when you have unexpected children for tea.

Gorgeous melt in the mouth biscuits. I added chopped glace cherries, and they needed more like 20 mins in the oven but really lovely
