TWD: Coconut Butter Thins


Another week, another tuesday: time passes by so fast!! But another tuesday also means another great TWD-recipe! This week Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch got to pick a recipe from the wonderfull book Baking: From my Home to Yours, Jayne chose Coconut Butter Thins.
The recipe can be found here!



This recipe is great!! Easy to prepare, pop into the fridge for a couple of hours, bake for a while and you'll end up with a delicious, delicate cookie. The coconut is barely noticeable and the thins taste really good.



The recipe makes 32 cookies. But I rolled out the dough just a bit thinner than the 1/4 inch specified in the recipe and cut the cookies a bit smaller, so I ended up with 72 smaller coconut butter thins that baked for 10 minutes. Since the dough does spread quite a bit while baking I still had reasonably sized cookies, with an average of only 1,5 WW Points per cookie!

Check out the results of my fellow TWD-ers here!

Marthe, those look great!

I'm glad you liked the recipe. And i thought it was majorly wrong that mine became so flat. Darn it. They were pretty tasty after all.

Your cookies are lovely Marthe - and they are the first lacy (and thin!) ones that I have seen.

I see lace in those cookie edges. They're a success! And I'll bet they taste good too.

Jayne zei

Ah - yours look nice and thin! Mine didn't spread all that much. Not that it mattered - the taste was wonderful. Thanks for baking along!

Isn't it funny how some are thin and others didn't spread? I love your smaller, delicate cookie. Yum, they were delicious.

These look great and they look like they'd have a nice crunch too. Mine were a little chewy but very good :)

Yours look great. About as thin as mine. I only made half a batch though and I did get 16 cookies. We ate them all! Such food hogs we are.
P.S. I haven't forgotten about the pay it forward. I'll post it soon. :)

They look delicious. I was sure these would spread more for me, so I was pleased that they held their shape.

Yours look so pretty.

Mine...well...not so much.

They look wonderful Marthe! Glad you enjoyed them. I think I liked the dough better than the baked cookies this week.

Tammy zei

I made mine thicker which made them a bit more like shortbread. Yours look great though

Linda zei

Only 1.5 WW points, unless you eat 8 of them like I did, LOL.

Nice job!

I rolled some of my cookies thinner and wow the difference was amazing. The thinner ones were way better. The flavors really stood out.

Nice job on the cookies!

Your cookies turned out beautifully. Must be how thick they were rolled.
