This is another recipe from the Australian Women’s weekly. These cookies tasted great.

Brown sugar – 11/4 cup, firmly packed
Eggs – 2, large
Plain flour – 1 1/2 cups

Desiccated coconut – 3/4 cup
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease the cookie tray & line with baking paper.
Beat butter, cream cheese, rind & brown sugar with electric mixer until light & fluffy. Beat in eggs one by one. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in sifted flour & coconut in 2 batches. The dough will be sticky.
