To prepare our coconut biscuits, chop the soft butter into pieces and add sugar into a bowl.
Whisk the ingredients with the electric whisk and then add the eggs, one at a time.
When you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, pour the sifted flour.
Continue adding a pinch of salt and the coconut.
Mix by hand.
Finally add the yeast and mix the dough one last time.
Now take a small portion of dough as big as a walnut and weighing about 20 g, make small balls with your hands.
Then create a groove by pressing with your thumb at the center of the ball.
Stuff with a chocolate button (or use a small bar of chocolate about 3 g) and wrap it back recreating the initial ball.
You should get about 29-30 biscuits.
Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at
180 °C for 20 minutes.
When baked, remove the biscuits, let them cool and then serve them with a sprinkling of icing sugar
Keep the coconut biscuits for a week at the most.
