Jenny's Biscuits

Anytime you need a plate to share at a function or the kids need something sweet in their lunch box, then this quick and easy recipe is just what you need.  And the best part is "no creaming butter and sugar".  Not sure if it is only me, but sometimes that is a little too much fuss if you are frazzled already!


125g melted butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1   1/2 cups  self raising flour
Coconut approx 1 cup


Combine first four ingredients in a bowl.
Roll a teaspoonful of mixture into a small bowl.
Roll in coconut.

Place on a greased oven tray and lightly press down with a fork.

Bake at 180 degrees c for 10-15 minutes until lightly gollden.

Cool on a wire rack.

Why are they called Jenny's biscuits?
Because 22 years ago Jenny bought a plate of biscuits to a mother's morning tea.

  1. Thank you. Just cooked these biscuits and they were delicious! So Easy. You are right - no creaming of butter sugar, so they are super quick to make and all family enjoying them!

  2. Thanks Mama Marmalade. Have made these biscuits 3 times now! On my most recent bake - I added a tiny handful of sultanas and chopped pecans to the biscuit mix and also a shake of cinnamon to the coconut rolling mix. This is such a brilliant base - so versatile - love it - thanks for sharing!
