Coconut Lemon Curd Scrolls

Coconut Lemon Scrolls

Classic, buttery scones are delicious when served with a side of lemon curd and these breakfast pastry scrolls are a takeoff on that favorite. The scrolls start with a tender, butter-rich dough that is rolled out and spread with lemon curd and sweetened, shredded coconut. Rolled up and baked, the finished pastries are kind of like the cinnamon bun version of a scone – only, ... Read More »

Coconut, Almond Cranberry Granola Bars

Coconut, Almond Cranberry Granola Bars

Granola bars tend¬†fall into two major categories. One type is mostly nuts – chunky and barely held together. The other type is more like a candy bar – sweet and sometimes full of chocolate. Neither is my favorite because I really want a granola bar that is lighter than the nut bar and healthier than the candy bar, so I definitely prefer to make my ... Read More »

Coconut Shortbread

I find that there are generally two types of shortbread cookies: thin, crispy ones and thick, buttery ones (A third type of shortbread cookies would be the “bad” ones, but I won’t even get into those – who wants to hear about bad cookies when you can hear about good ones?).

The supermarket cookies come packaged this way, but it’s really nothing that shouldn’t be done at home. You can make the dough well in advance, wrap it up into a log and keep it in the freezer for ... Read More »

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I have been wanting to make macaroons for a really long time, so I bought some shredded coconut and put it in the fridge, where it has patiently been waiting. And, as you may have guessed from the photo above, it never made it to macaroons. These are Coconut Oatmeal Cookies based on a recipe from Maida Heatter’s New Book of Great Desserts. I bought ...

bills Coconut Bread

The first time I saw this recipe it was in a newspaper article. I wasn’t too familiar with Bill Granger at the time, but clipped out the recipe because it featured coconut – and I am a big coconut fan. It took me a while to get around to baking the bread. Once I had had it, there was no going back. The bread is ... Read More »
