Coconutty Shuku Shuku

I was looking for a little sweet treat the other day, and sadly, there was nothing to be found. So I dug through my cookbooks and found this super simple little number in frankie’s Sweet Treats.
If you have five minutes (plus 20 for baking) and want a little something-something that’s sweet but not too bad for you, then give these little gems a go: Coconutty Shuku Shuku!
You’ll need:

1 cup desiccated cocnut
1/4 cup caster sugar
3 egg yolks
self-raising flour (for rolling)
icing sugar (for rolling)
1. Mix the coconut, caster sugar and egg yolks together until they form a firm, sticky dough.
2. Using your hands, roll teaspoonfuls of the mixture into little balls, roll through the flour and pop on a lined baking tray.
3. Put the tray into a preheated oven (175C) and bake for around 15-20 minutes, until slightly golden and firm.
4. Allow to cool and then roll through the icing sugar.
5. Eat about 8 with your morning coffee!
They taste a little bit like macaroons and I think I love them.
