Date Rollettes





Vintage Date Rollettes


  • 4 oz butter = 1/2 cup = 113.4g
  • 8 oz S.R.Flour = 227g
  • 18 dates
  • 4 oz sugar = 113g
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup Dessicated Coconut
  • 1/2 cup milk

Cream butter and sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. When well mixed and white in colour, add well beaten egg, then slowly add flour.

Roll a date in a spoonful of the biscuit mixture. Mould into uniform oblong shapes, or whatever shape you like.

Roll into a little milk, and then coat lightly in desiccated coconut.

Bake in a moderate oven at 180 deg. F. or 375 deg. C. for around 20 minutes depending on the heat of your oven, and until nicely browned. Check their progress after 15 minutes to ensure they aren't burning.

This is a nice, vintage tasting biscuit recipe, the type your great aunt or grandmother would have made.
