Raspberry Coconut Swirls

Biscuit Dough

2 cups flour
1tsp soda
2 tsp each baking powder/cream of tartar
¼ shortening
¾ to 1 cup of milk

¼ cup butter or margarine
1 cup of raspberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup brown sugar (my husband has a really sweet tooth, you could use half the sugar)
½ – ¾ cup coconut

For the dough: Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar together with a fork. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two knives till the pieces of shortening are the size of small peas. Make a well in the centre and add the milk all at once, stirring with a fork to combine. Pat out on a floured surface and roll to about ¼ inch thickness.

Spread the butter or margarine over the rolled out dough. Sprinkle the berries over the rolled out dough, mine were frozen so I just sort of mushed them with a fork. Sprinkle the sugar overtop the berries, then the coconut. Starting at the long side, roll up into a log. Slice the log with a serrated knife and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.


This makes a HUGE mess as you are making them, but the results are worth it.
