Butter Ball Cookies

Servings: 18 biscuits


  • 115 grams butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups SR flour
  • little extra sugar and coconut (for rolling)


  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add egg and beat well.
  • Add coconut and SR flour and combine well.
  • Roll into balls and then roll in the extra coconut and sugar mixture.
  • Place on a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Place into the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Take from the freezer and place into pre-heated slow-moderate oven (I set my fan-forced oven to 155 degrees celsius).
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Allow to cool. Sprinkle a little of the leftover sugar-coconut mixture on cookies once cooled, if desired.
