500 g castor sugar

500 g shredded coconut

9 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

9 tablespoons  self raising flour

eggs (small)

1 packet vanilla sugar

glazed cherries, halved


  • Pre heat oven to 170C.
  • Place sugar in a bowl and add the eggs one at a time beating well. Beat mixture until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla sugar and melted butter to mixture and beat until combined. Now put the mixer down and get ready to use your hands.
  • Add the shredded coconut, and flour and mix well with your hand making sure all ingredients are well combined. Let mixture sit a little bit for the dry ingredients to absorb the wet. The mixture should stick to a spoon. If too watery you can a little more flour and coconut.
  • Place baking paper down on flat trays and scoop tablespoons of the mixture onto the trays allowing enough room for some spreading. Place a glazed cherry on top and place into oven until they turn a light golden brown.
  • Petifours should have a crisp outside with a chewy moist centre.
