Coconut nests

My diva is moving to a new creche and i wanted to bake some biscuits as a going away present for the teachers. Well we baked together, me and her, though she ate the dough more than anything else. My mom gave me a recipe she use to make for us when we were little, so this recipe holds a dear place in my heart.



150g softened butter
65ml sugar
1 egg separated
320ml cake flour
1ml salt
packet coconut

How to make it:
Cream butter and sugar. add yolk, sift flower and salt together and add to butter mixture. Roll dough into balls and dip in egg white which is beaten slightly ( a bit frothy but still see through). roll into coconut. place the ball on baking pan press a little indent on top of ball and add jam or cherries (I choose apricot jam). Bake for 10-15min
