  • 225 g butter softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut essence
  • cups plain flour
  • 200 g Kaya Jam


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add in the coconut essence and stir until mixed through.
  • Sift in the flour and bring the mixture together to form a dough (don't overbeat).
  • Roll the dough into balls and place them a few centimeters apart on a lined baking tray.
  • Gently flatten the balls out slightly with your hand. Using your thumb make a dent in the middle of each cookie (don't make a hole through to the bottom though!)
  • Fill each hole with Kaya Jam.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
