Food Librarian - Coconut Butter Thins (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Coconut Butter Thins

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch selected on Coconut Butter Thins on page 145 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Food Librarian - Coconut Butter Thins (Tuesdays with Dorie)
This recipe calls for lime zest but I forgot to buy one and used a Meyer lemon instead. The dough was easy to put together in the morning, roll out and let it chill out in the refrig. I came home from work, cut them out and baked them off. Dorie has you cut them into squares with a ruler and all...but my blob of dough was so misshaped I thought circles might be easier!

Food Librarian - Coconut Butter Thins (Tuesdays with Dorie)
They were light and buttery. Coconut, lemon zest, & macadamia nuts!
Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers!

P.S. Happy Birthday Dad!
Pin It!

Happy Birthday to your dad...hope his day is wonderful. I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but these are looking so light & delicious, that I would like coconut just for them!

Mary, the cookies look so perfect. I like how you made circles instead.

I did cut my cookies in square, but had no ruler at hand... So I had square cookies in different sizes ;)

Another "non-spreader"! Very nice! Interesting how they kept their shape... mine spread horribly. Still very good though. Love the circle shape. Happy Birthday to your dad!

OH! COOL! Happy Birthday Food Librarian DAD!!! Hope you got to taste those wonderful cookies! (but perhaps you got something even more special from the Librarian!?)

(I hope he reads your blog, and sees all these messages!)

Nicely done, Mary... very courageous to have used a cutter!

Oh I love that you made your round!! My square ones did not come out all the same size for some reason. Some spread more than others. Yours look great!!!

I love the circle shape and I think that Meyer lemon is always appropriate. They look absolutely fantastic, just like everything on your blog.

It was kind of fun measuring and slicing 32 little squares, but the circles look so pretty! Great job.

So pretty in round shapes...and you got some nice color on yours, too! I just bought four meyer lemons because I saw them in Whole Foods, and you've been inspiring me to try them. I'm going to make your cake first, I think. Happy Birthday to your Dad!

I like them round. They look so light and delicious. I tried to cut into diamonds, but didn't have the angle right, so ended up with squares. Great job.

lyndsay said... [Reply to comment]

YUM! did you make these for your dad?? i often bake for my dad, though he shouldn't be eating too many buttery sugary things... ! it's great to have people to bake for.
