TWD-Coconut Butter Thins


When I read the recipe I knew this was going to be a cookie I would like, possibly love. I love lime. I love coconut. And add some macadamia nuts to it and you have a little piece of heaven. 

The dough was very easy to make and rolled out perfectly in a gallon-sized freezer bag. After a little time in the fridge they baked up perfectly. Some of them seemed to brown more than others so when I make them again I think I will reduce the baking time. When they came out of the oven I felt they were missing something though. They were kind of dull looking so I decided to do a lime glaze for the top of the cookie with some powdered sugar, lime juice and lime zest. It added another level of freshness to the cookie for me.

The only complaint I have was that I couldn't taste the coriander at all. Maybe my "pinch" was too small. I was intrigued by that ingredient and hoped it would manifest itself more in the final result. 

I shared these cookies with my parents, sister and her husband, my hubby and kiddos and got great reviews. Everyone loved them. My dad requested a copy of the recipe. These will go into the rotation of great cookie recipes at the Hasler house.

Happy Baking!

Smart idea to try the glaze! Mine browned pretty quickly, too, so I reduced the baking time.
