Coconut Butter Passionfruit Jam Drops

Recently I discovered Honest to Goodness, I have been buying their organic flour for my sourdough and also trying some of the other products.

I had to sit the jar in warm water as it went quite hard.
I was very keen to taste this coconut butter and was definitely not disappointed.
I've used it in many ways - a coconut custard, a frangipane tart and added a spoonful to finish a pumpkin soup. 
So beautiful and smooth with a very rich coconut flavour.

These little melt in your mouth dairy free cookies were an experiment.

Combine the coconut butter and icing sugar.
Mix in the sifted flours.

Add some coconut oil to bring it together.

Roll into bite size little balls.

Make a dent in your balls.

Fill with some jam.

Bake for fifteen minutes.

Cool on a rack.

The coconut flavour was superb and went beautifully with the passionfruit.
They melted in your mouth but the texture was quite different to a butter based cookie.
I think they are a delicious little treat.
