Recipe: Cocoanut Buns

Prepare the dough just the same as for cinnamon BUNS and when ready to turn on a moulding board add

  • One cupful of cocoanut,
  • Three tablespoonfuls of shortening.

Knead to mix and then work the dough into a long roll about three inches thick and then break into pieces the size of a large egg. Now mould until round and then let rise on the board for ten minutes. Mould again, shaping oblong. Place on a well-greased pan and brush the BUNS with melted shortening. Let rise for thirty minutes and then bake in a hot oven and ice with cocoanut icing.
