This is a chewy cookie that (as far as I know) is a Guyanese recipe.
They are addictive and easy.

You'll need:
200 gr Shredded Coconut
1 cup of butter (room temp.)
2 cups of brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp nutmeg
2 cups of flour
6 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all the ingredients together with your hands, wetting them every so often until the pastry holds together. Form a ball.

Wrap the ball in clig film, and let it rest for about half an hour.
Then roll it out into a square.
While it's resting, pre heat the oven to 350F

I use a pizza cutter to cut it into small squares, but a knife works just as well.

Like so.

Place on baking sheets about an inch apart.

Bake until edges a re bubbling and crisp looking.
They will spread, but you can separate them while they're warm with the edge of knife.
