Friday Food File: Afghans Biscuits

Hi, how's it going?
Growing up my mum would bake  different kinds of cakes, biscuits slices etc. One of my favourite is Afghans biscuits. Their cocoa and cornflakes mixed together with a chocolate icing and coconut. It's so good, here's the recipe below:

Afghans Biscuits

150g butter
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoon of cocoa
1/3 cup coconut
1 1/2 cup of cornflakes

How to make it:
1. Preheat oven to 180c and lay out trays with baking paper.

2. Cream butter and sugar in a bowl, then add egg and vanilla beat until mixed together.

3.Add the sifted flour and cocoa along with cornflakes and coconut.

4. Once mixed together, put spoonful of mixture onto the oven tray. Then put in the oven for 20 minutes.

5. Then to make icing: add icing sugar, cocoa and abit of milk. Mix together until it becomes thick, adding milk at a small portion at a time.

6. Spread the icing over the biscuit and sprinkle or dip in coconut.
