  1. I used your recipe but why wouldn’t they roll into a ball!!!
    Must admit I used ½ thread coconut and ½ dessicated coconut, would that be the problem?

  2. The best recipe for these biscuits that I have ever made. Duckshooter went off with some in the tucker bag !
    Thanks Helen.

  3. I make these biscuits withy my own mix of Gluten Free flour, they are very yummy. I guess you could use bought GF flour but I find it too expensive to use for the amount of baking I do.
    I have just been in Australia for 4 weeks and the GF products are much less expensive there and when you require GF bread or soy milk in food you order at a cafe there is NO extra charge. Very commendable.
