Guyanese Rock Buns

Guyanese Rock Buns
I got this recipe for Rock Buns from my Mother-in-law.  She makes these around Christmas time and I love them.  I can have them for breakfast, and all day long as a snack.  They are great with a cup of tea and coffee.  Once I got the recipe from Mom, I made them for my Nanie and well she loved them just as much and making buns for her became a regular thing especially around the holidays.  Since Nanie passed on I kind of stop baking as much and this past Thanksgiving was the first time in a long time since I made Nanie's favorites.  I hope you try and enjoy this recipe as much as I do.  I will be making them for Christmas too.

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Bake Time: 15-18 minutes
Ingredients:
2 cups of Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
6 oz.  room temperature Butter (1 stick + 2 tablespoons)
6 oz. Sugar or (3/4 cup) 
1 egg
(A touch of milk if necessary meaning your egg was too small)
Shredded Coconut (half of the bag)
Raisins &Walnuts (optional if you're allergic or don't like, try chocolate chips or other fruits)


Mix All Dry Ingredients together, fruits, nuts, and coconuts in a large bowl. 





Add one beaten egg and mix
If necessary add a touch of milk until you get a dough that holds together.






Spoon by tablespoons on to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes on middle rack until golden brown on top.  Allow to cool and enjoy.  Store in Air tight containers.
