This week in Tuesdays with Dorie, Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch selected Coconut Butter Thins on page 145 of Dorie Greenspan's epic tome - Baking: from my home to yours. Please see Jayne's site for the recipe, today's date.
This was certainly an interesting cookie to make. It has the texture of a shortbread with the chewiness of an oatmeal cookie. (sans oatmeal) The addition of sweetened shredded coconut and lime zest give it a slight tropical feel.
The dough gets made up and rolled out in a one gallon sized freezer bag and then refrigerated. Hopefully in a flat position. Flat positions are not to be had in my fridge - one has to straddle over milk, leftovers, assorted produce that does not fit in the bins.... Needless to say, my dough was less than flat when I finally had to cut it for baking. No mind - the cook gets to eat the funny looking ones.
Speaking of funny looking.. I forgot to dock the dough with a fork. I don't seem to be any worse off for it, they didn't rise or anything, so I won't punish myself too harshly.
