  • 50g butter, softened

  • zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 1 large Bird Bros egg

  2. Place six spoonfuls of the mixture well apart on each of the baking sheets. Flatten with a fork and sprinkle over the coconut shreds. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack.

  3. To decorate mix the reserved lime juice with the icing sugar to make a thin icing. Drizzle the icing over the biscuits. Leave to set. These biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
