2 cups sifted whole wheat flour
1 cup butter
3⁄4 cup brown sugar
2 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Sift measured flour and cut in butter with 2 knives or pastry blender.
Add sugar, coconut and slightly beaten egg and knead with hands until the dough holds together and the egg has disappeared.
Shape dough into a roll approximately 2 1⁄2 inches in diameter, wrap in waxed paper and chill until firm enough to slice, approximately 1 hour.
Slice the dough 1/8 inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes at 375 degrees.
