TWD: Coconut Butter Thins

Its TWD time again, and this week we are ringing in Tuesday with cookies. Coconut butter thins to be exact!

I was really pleased with these cookies, mainly because they are so different with their unique flavors of lime zest, dried coriander, macadamia nut, and coconut. They weren’t quite what I expected (I think I expected these to be more of a shortbread) but I love them because they were really chewy and moist.

I liked the “roll out in a Ziploc bag” trick! Honestly, I love making roll out cookies but I HATE cleaning up the mess. This made it so easy. I was a tad surprised when I checked on these in the oven to find that these had spread out…I mean REALLY spread. But, then again they are butter ‘thins’.

I thought these were the ultimate spring cookie or would also be great for a Hawaian themed party, so I am sure I will be making these again very soon!

Thanks Jayne of the Barefoot Kitchen Witch for Hosting TWD this week! Check out Jayne’s page if you would like the recipe to these delightful cookies!

I know some of the other bakers are probably doing some fun variations, as they always do so be sure to check out Dorie’s blogroll!
I measured mine...
Cut them nice and neat...

Awww I love your first picture..cute plate and lovely ribbon! Your cookies are perfect. I am so jealous at that perfect square you got from rolling your dough out. I had a hard time with that part. Great job!

Your cookies look so great and I'm glad that you liked them! It must have been a nice break from all of the cakes that you've been baking lately? I love the first picture too.
