Softened unsalted butter-1 cup /8 oz

Vanilla essence-1 tsp

Coconut essence(optional)-1/2 tsp


Lightly cream butter using an electric beater.Mix with all the other ingredients and press the dough well into a baking tray.Bake in a preheated moderate oven, for about 40 minutes or till the top is medium brown.Remove from the oven.Let it cool slightly and mark into squares.

Meanwhile prepare a Vanilla Coconut Glaze using:-

2 cups icing sugar

1 tbsp soft butter

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1/2 tsp coconut essence

and a few table spoons of boiling water.

METHOD:-Beat all the ingredients well to obtain a smooth glaze and spread it immediately over the warm crunch.. Let it cool down completely before breaking apart the crunchies.
