Coconut Lime Biscuits

Tropical Flavours 

I am going to tell all of you a little secret about  my cooking.  Whenever I cook using tropical flavours I feel a heightened sense of sweet nostalgia and become overwhelmed with memories of the only place I have truly called home.  Coconut and Lime just shout out paradise, so here is my recipe for wonderful cookies kissed with tropical flavours.

This recipe has been adapted from Sam Stern’s Student Cookbook (Walker Books).
