Coconut dices

DSC_1527

Here is another lovely christmas cookie recipe which you can actually also bake during the year. Coconut dices! They kind of remind me of Australian lamingtons when making. These coconut dices don´t really taste like lamingtons, but have a delicious taste of coffee, coconut and rum. These coconut dices are simply delicious and if you like grated coconut as much as I do, I´m sure  you´ll love them as well! (: This recipe is a recipe of a friend of my family and since I have made them for the first time last christmas everybody loves them and asked me to make them again.
