Buttery Coconut Thins are a simple cookie recipe to have on hand as they are a delight not only to eat but to make.
*disclaimer .. the shortest post we have ever made & we are apologizing now.
Tuesdays with Dorie time … how we love Tuesdays! Jayne of the Barefoot Kitchen Witch picked Coconut Butter Thins for this week’s challenge. I was going to sit it out, only because we are swamped at work, but when I read the ingredient list, I knew I had to make it – coconut, lime zest & macadamia nuts. I love the three together. Reminds me of a tropical drink on a sunny beach.
Unfortunately, when I went to the store to get all the ingredients, they were out of the nuts. The only other addition I made was cardamon, I thought it would go great with the coconut and the lime – I was right! As well, the recipe called for cutting the cookie dough into squares, but I thought they would be fun to make circles. So I rolled the dough into a log and let it chill over night – easy bake slice cookies.
The cookies are lightly crisp, buttery and scented just like a tropical day at the beach. They reminded me of a new and improved girl scout cookie – will definitely be making these again!
