TWD~Coconut Butter Thins


First things first, Sorry for the hiatus... I've been awfully busy lately which has lead to little or no baking on my part.
Second of all, I do not like coconut, well in some things I do. But not shredded coconut.
So these technically are NOT Coconut Butter Thins... They are Almond Butter Thins with a cute little chocolate chip on top.
I took a long look at the recipe and said, Holy Jamole! This seems quite the process for some cookies. Lime zest, do not have, Shredded Coconut, Nish Nish! Macadamia Nuts? Do I look like my economy has been stimulated lately?
But in my endeavor to be more resourceful and upbeat I decided to make my own version.
I also was not too keen on the putting the dough in baggie and rolling it out and using a ruler and doing math.
So i mixed everything up and then added a heaping handful of almonds to the dough. And a drop or two of Almond extract and oh yeah Curry powder.
Well I added that to my flour. Why you ask? Well because I did not have ground coriander and I read on the comments that you could use Curry powder. I can't even taste it.
I did not put these in a baggie, did not roll them out nor did I put them in the fridge to chill. Just plopped them on a cookie sheet avec parchment paper and viola... the yummiest little cookies I've had in awhile.
They were super light and crisp and had crunchy bits of almond.
Job well done.
And the little chocolate chip morsel on top... just a faint hint of chocolate to bring it all together.
It's good to be back!
