1/2 cu caster sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup custard powder, sifted
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
2/3 cup icing sugar
2 teaspoons of milk
1/3 cup strawberry jam
Preheat oven to mederate (180C).
Line two 32 x 28cm biscuit trays with baking paper.
Using electric beaters, beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add the milk and beat until combined. Sift the flour and custard powder and add to the bowl with the coconut. Mix to form a soft dough.
Roll 2 teaspoons of mixture into balls. Place on the prepared baking trays and press lightly with a fork. Bake in the oven for 15-20mins or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before adding the filling.
Beat the butter and sugar with electric beater until light and creamy. Beat in the milk. Spread one biscuit with about half a teaspoon of filling and one with half a teaspoon of jam and sandwich the halves together.
HINT: These biscuits can be stored up to 4 days in an airtight container.
