Melt 100g butter and pour into a large bowl.
Mix in 1 heaped cup of self raising flour, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of dessicated coconut.
Mix in 1 beaten egg.
Beat for a minute or two.
Make into small balls with your hands (approx 18), slightly flatten and place on a baking tray. (Allow room for spreading.)
Bake at 180 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire tray - at least long enough that you don't burn your lips.
(That's quicker than walking to the corner shop!)
