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!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

You need butter, cinnamon, and sugar also. Plus you can add raisins or cranberries if you want to.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made it with margarine and added 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar and it turned out great. It was tastier than the coocnut buns that we buy at the bakery.

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...
