I decided to have a go at making a sandwich biscuit. The biscuit is like shortbread the filling is sweet, creamy & coconutty, perfect!

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and use cutters to form the shapes you want. I used smaller hearts or circle cutters on one side of some of the biscuits just to look pretty!

Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until starting to turn light golden.

Transfer to a cooling rack.

Making the icing

Cream the butter & coconut cream together then gradually add the icing sugar and beat until smooth & fluffy.

I placed them in the fridge for 30 minutes just to harden up the filling a little. Enjoy!
