These Maltese coconut fingers are so easy to make. You can decorate with cherries or almonds, or a mixture, if desired, or you can dip them in chocolate!

IngredientsMakes: 16 coconut fingers

  • 200g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 200g desiccated coconut
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • cherries or almonds, to decorate

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:20min ›Extra time:30min › Ready in:1hr10min

  1. Shift flour and baking powder together. Rub in butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add sugar and coconut and mix. Add eggs to form a smooth dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 to 60 minutes.
  2. Form 8 to 10cm (3 to 4 in) fingers. Put a cherry or almond on top of each finger, pressing gently. Place fingers on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
  3. Bake in a preheated 180 C / Gas 4 oven for 20 to 30 minutes or till light golden brown in colour (ensure they're only a light brown as if you leave them too long they will become hard). Remove and let cool on a wire rack.


You can also dip each half of them in some melted chocolate, in which case you don't need to use the cherries or almonds.
