Double Coconut Oil Shortbread Cookie Recipe


Double coconut oil shortbread cookie

May sound a bit confusing but I called it double coconut because these cookies contain coconut oil and desiccated coconut.  So almost 'double' the amount of coconut flavour.

If you want to try single coconut oil shortbread cookie, try this recipe.
 

On to another issue, some idiot was copying my recipes and photos and posting on his (yes a guy) facebook page without my permission. And a kind blogger brought this to my attention. I wrote to the idiot and asked him to remove the photos and text within a day otherwise I will report to facebook. No action was taken so I reported to facebook, and they removed the photos and text within a day. Pretty good result. That idiot copied quite a few photos and recipes. While I should feel good that my recipes and photos are good enough to be copied, it still didn’t make me happy. But very impressed with facebook’s speedy action.

Ingredients
½ cup sugar (use ¾ cup if you prefer your cookies a bit sweeter)
210ml coconut oil
40 ml water
1 cup desiccated coconut (toasted, optional but recommended)
1½ cups flour (you may need a little more)

Directions
1.      Heat oven to 170°C / 340°F
2.      Mix the coconut oil, water and sugar thoroughly until sugar has dissolved.
3.      Add flour and desiccated coconut and mix to get a smooth paste. 
4.      Form the dough in the desired shape, preferably about 1 cm thick. Chill the mixture for a few minutes if its gets too difficult to work with
5.      Bake until pale golden-brown, about 15-20 minutes

  1. I'm sorry to hear about this facebook incident, but I'm happy their reaction was quick. Your photos and recipes are of course very appetising, otherwise they wouldn't be stolen ;-) Seriously, it happens all the time, so I hope you don't worry too much.
    Your cookies are very inspiring; I'm putting coconut oil on my shopping list!

  3. The biggest compliment is to have someone take your idea and make it their own, that's just the way the cookie crumbles ... smile and rejoice that there is only one you
