    JustJanS's Note:

    Posting for Fairy Nuff to have a look at. These are a very popular biscuit (cookie) in Australia, and this tastes pretty much like the bought variety.

      I tried Monte Carlos for the first time and loved them so I tried making them for a bake-off at work. This was the recipe I used and I won the bake-off, they were delicious!

      Delicious! I used shredded coconut because that's what I had on hand. I got 15 sandwiched biscuits from this recipe. I will add more icing sugar to the filling mixture next time to get a fluffier filling. I subbed vegan spread for the butter and Ogran 'No Egg' for the egg.
