It's Tuesday, and you know what that means! Tuesdays with Dorie is an online baking club that bakes the same recipe together for the week and posts on Tuesdays. Thank you to Jayne from The Barefoot Kitchen Witch for choosing this weeks recipe. She also has a sweet Etsy shop so make sure to check that out as well!
Today's recipe is Coconut Butter Thins. I think it is funny that 3 recipes in a row have used the infusing zest into the sugar technique. No one knew what recipes the others were choosing so it is just random. This weeks recipe called for lime zest instead of lemon though.Dorie says she almost didn't include this recipe in the book. I am glad she did because it is really good. It is a really light shortbread but it is quite lime-y. I got Persian limes so I don't know if that made a difference or not. It may have been the infusing technique that made them so strong. I did tell my husband I thought they were too limey but he seemed to think they were really good anyway.
Munchkin wouldn't try them at all due to her aversion to all things coconut. Little Man is sick so he won't touch them either. He actually said to me that he doesn't like cookies. That is when you know the child is sick because he likes anything with sugar in it.
These were easy to throw together and to roll out. Unfortunately I couldn't find my ruler after scrapping last weekend so they are a little less than uniform. Oh well. The crazy looking ones tasted just as good as the perfect ones. :)
