TWD: COCONUT BUTTER THINS


Many thanks to Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch for choosing this weeks recipe. These cookies tasted just like a butter cookie with lime, coconut, and almond flavoring! I loved the combination of these flavors although the original recipe calls for lime, coconut, and macadamia nuts which I'd love to try as well. I substituted the vanilla extract for almond and sliced these cookies both circular and rectangularly using round 1 1/2 inch cookie cutters. Some of my cookies were significantly thinner than others thus baking more crisply which I preferred. They are super crunchy and buttery with a zing! I will most definitely be making these again, perhaps with the original instructed ingredients!
Check out Jayne's blog for the recipe. It won't disappoint...

Nice job! Your cookies look perfect. I wish I'd subbed the vanilla extract for almond. I love almond extract.

These were good, weren't they. I used cashews and chai in mine. Love shortbread and I will make again. May have to try wit almonds next time. Yours look yummy!
