The last time it happened we made chocolate biscuits, and used up the cocoa. I must buy more.
I looked for what we had, and that was three oranges in the fruit bowl. I could use the zest. I looked for an easy recipe, I always look for the easiest recipe. I found one and decided to add some extras I had in the pantry.
I like these biscuits. I like that Izzy can help by rolling the dough in balls herself, even though at least three or four biscuits worth of dough go missing in her mouth. But isn't that the best bit for kids in the biscuit making process? She would have eaten the lot if I let her.
3/4 cup Self Raising Flour
100 gr butter or marg
1/4 cup caster sugar

1/4 cup dessicated coconut
