These biscuits are a little unusual as they use jelly crystals in place of sugar. The original recipe has orange flavoured jelly, but I’m sure you could use other flavours successfully. I top them off with a chocolate button just to add an extra kick.



  • 125g butter
  • 1 packet orange jelly crystals
  • 30g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 60g coconut
  • 60g ground rice
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chocolate buttons

Cream butter with jelly crystals and sugar. Add beaten egg and the dry ingredients previously mixed together. Place in small spoonfuls on a tray lined with baking paper and bake 15-20 minutes at 180ºC.
