These really aren't a biscuit, they are more like a cookie, but whatever you want to call them, they are GREAT!! They have a chewy, yet crispy inside and the flavor is just wonderful. Imagine an oatmeal tasting cookie with coconut and molasses, and you can just begin to imagine how yummy these are.
1 tsp molasses
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp very hot water
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup oatmeal ( I use the quick cooking variety)
3/4 cup flour
In a medium saucepan, place the butter, molasses, baking powder and sugar. Mix in the hot water. Bring it to a boil and remove from heat. Add the coconut, oatmeal and flour and mix well. Place large spoonfuls of the mixture onto a cookie sheet a few inches apart from each other. Bake at 275 for 25 minutes.
