❨❩ the world gets smaller

it's great when someone takes the time to
write down a recipe for you:
a piece of paper with handwriting:
shared baking secrets:
this one was given to me by Justine when she
lived in the UK:
now she's a zillion miles away in Australia:
we always call these Justine's cookies:
and they are truly yum!

you will need:
125g softened butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar *200g*
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self raising flour *150g*
1 cup desiccated coconut *100g*
250g chopped chocolate
place butter, vanilla extract and sugar in 
a bowl and beat until creamy:
beat egg into mixture and then stir
through flours, coconut and chocolate:
roll 2 tablespoons of mixture at a time into balls:
place balls on lined baking trays and flatten slightly:
bake in preheated oven 190°c/ gas 5 for 15 minutes
or until cookies are lightly browned:
cool on trays: serve with hot chocolate:
makes 20:
