TWD: Coconut Butter Thins
I love cookies. Love to make 'em, love to eat 'em. I have only made, however, the simple, basic cookes. Shortbread is new to me. My cookies weren't pretty, but they sure were delicious! The hint of lime with the coconut and macadamias is a perfect flavor combination. The cookie is soft and buttery; a melt-in-your-mouth kind of texture. The raw dough was delicious, too.
I forgot to fork the dough before baking the cookies. Perhaps that's why the square shape kind of stayed in the center while the edges spread out (?) I decided to dress them up with some white chocolate; which would have been a good idea had I not applied too much white chocolate to the cookies. It ended up overpowering their delicate flavor and texture. A drizzle, though, would have been lovely. A big thanks to Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch for selecting this wonderful recipe!
