TWD - Coconut Butter Thins


This weeks recipe was chosen by Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch.

I only got around to baking these this morning, last minute i know! Really straightforward to put together. I left the dough in the fridge for two hours. I didn't measure the dough for the 32 cookies, i just eyeballed it, and of course now i wish i had made smaller cookies :)


Most of mine spread but that was ok because they didn't last very long. That's right... all gone. My son ate three as soon as they cooled down, i brought some to a playdate and the feedback was good. I managed to save two for my friend Sandy (in exchange for two of her cinnamon rolls), she liked them but said she wished the macadamia nuts were bigger.

I really liked these, perfect with a cup of tea, or coffee, or anything really. I couldn't taste the coriander but I'm sure if i didn't add it it wouldn't be as flavourful.

Great choice Jayne, thanks for a great pick :)

Your cookies look great. Mine spread a bit too but mostly kept their shape. They weren't my favorite but the dough was good.
