Guyanese Coconut Buns7 Reviews
“My best friend gave me this recipe she was given while in British Guyana. You can substitute butter with margarine if the thought of a half pound of butter terrifies you :-) These are really delicious!” - by peep

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter, and cut in using a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet ingredients. Add coconut, and mix just enough to blend. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

"Only a light coconut taste, I prefer something stronger, sorry! I would say these are more like cookies rather than buns. Still pretty good though! Just not what I expected......" See more"
