Coconut Jam Drops Cookies held by fingers

 1 ½ cups plain flour, sift (180gr)
 1 cup desiccated coconut (85gr)
 1 tsp baking powder
 ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature (113 gr)
 ½ cup caster sugar (115gr)
 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
 1 egg, at room temperature
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ¼ cup jam of your choice (80gr)
 extra desiccated coconut to roll cookies in
1

Preheat your oven to 180C (355F) and line two baking trays with baking paper.

2

Prepare the dry ingredients. Place the flour, desiccated flour, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl and whisk to mix well. Set aside.

3

In a large mixing, beat the butter and sugars (caster/brown) until light and creamy. Remember to scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl. Add the eggs and beat until well mixed. Add the vanilla and repeat.

4

Fold in half of the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and stop folding as soon as the ingredients come together. Repeat with the remaining dry ingredients.

5

Using an ice cream scoop (around 2 tbsp), scoop up some cookie dough and roll it into a firm ball. Place the ball into some desiccated coconut to cover it all over. You should be able to make around 15-17 cookies. Press the centre of the cookie with your thumb to make an indent in the middle and to flatten the cookies. Place around 1/2 tsp of the jam of your choice in the middle of the cookies. Bake for around 11-13 minutes.

6

Transfer to a cooling rack and let it come to room temperature before serving. Place in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days and in the fridge for up to a week.
