Italian coconut biscuits with white chocolate







Prep time: 25 min

Baking time: 20 min

Portions: about 30



250g Grated Coconut

100g white chocolate buttons

2 Eggs

90g Flour 00 

80g Sugar

80g Soft butter 

5g Baking powder for cakes 

Pinch of salt


Icing sugar




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.


Buon Appetito!
