  1. Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add the lime rind, egg and coconut and beat until smooth, gradually beat in the flour.
  2. Spoon the mixture onto a piece of greaseproof paper shaped into a log about 35 cm long. Roll the dough in the chopped pistachios then warp in the paper and twist the ends together, chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes or up to 3 days.
  3. To serve, unwrap and slice off as many biscuits as required, arrange on a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven, 1800C, set timer for 10 minutes until pale golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, these are best eaten on the day they are made.
