290g NEILL’S® Plain Flour
150g Silver Spoon® Caster Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
1tsp Strawberry Flavouring
100g Desiccated Coconut
~50g Strawberry Jam
Preheat oven to 180c
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Beat in the egg yolk and continue to mix until well combined.
Beat in the strawberry flavouring.
In a separate bowl sieve the flour and salt together. Mix in the coconut.
Add the dry mix to the wet mix and stir until all ingredients are combined and forms a stiff dough.
Take 1tbsp of the dough, roll between your hands to form a ball. Place on a baking tray and press down slightly.
Use the end of a spoon to make a dent in the centre of the dough.
Using a piping bag filled with jam fill the dent being careful not to overfill, as it will bubble over during cooking.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 mins.
Remove and allow to cool for at least 10 mins as the jam will be very hot!
