These yummy Afghan biscuits are quick and easy and perfect for kids lunchboxes.
My lovely Mum used to do a lot of baking when I was growing up. The days we got off the school bus and Mum told us she had done baking were great! Afghan biscuit’s were always a favorite and still are today.
I have topped my yummy Afghan Biscuits with coconut, only because my children do not like walnuts which you traditionally put on the top of Afghans.
These will keep in a airtight container for up to a week.
In a large bowl beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and creamy. Sift in the flour and cocoa, then add the ground almonds, crushed weetbix or cornflakes and coconut then stir thoroughly until the mixture is combined.
Place heaped teaspoonfuls onto a baking tray, squeeze mixture together gently then press lightly with a fork to slightly flatten
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack then ice/frost.
Icing: Mix icing sugar,cocoa butter and 1 Tbsp boiling water at a time until combined, adding more hot water if necessary until icing is a spreadable consistency. Ice biscuits and top each one with coconut
