Expert Tips

  • These rich little cookies are extra-special when made with macadamia nuts.
  • To ensure recipe success, do not use self-rising flour or vegetable oil spreads in this recipe.
  • Make it your way. Toasted Coconut Tea Cakes are a special treat for coconut lovers. Toast 3/4 cup coconut by baking uncovered in an ungreased shallow pan at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Let coconut cool before adding to the dough.
