Coconut Butter Thins or I Hope it is Tuesday Somewhere!!

Did you know that cornstarch works for diaper rash?

It does and that is the reason I'm a little tardy on my TWD post. My butter was soft, lime zested, flour measured just ready to add the cornstarch. It's gone!



Then I remember sweet Martha Ann who had spent two days in a car seat to visit Nana. We tried everything to calm her sore 'seat'. Finally my daughter suggested cornstarch--we filled a Pampered Chef shaker with the white powder and it worked. So Martha Ann was happy but Nana sent the cornstarch shaker back to El Paso--it is a long ride home!




So, back to Coconut Butter Thins chosen by Jayne , these could be one of the best cookies I have ever eaten--and I've eaten quite a few. I used 2T less butter, I'm cooking at an altitude over 4000 feet. It is interesting how a small adjustment in butter can affect the outcome of a recipe. The cookies were beautiful!

I love Dories method of rolling out the cookie--the gallon bag was perfect. I refrigerated my cookies overnight, removed the bag, put them on a cutting board and with the help of a ruler and pizza cutter I had perfect cookies! I will make these again!

Sorry we took all your cornstarch. It does work great though. The cookies look delicious. I wish we were there to eat some.

What a great idea to use the gallon bag to roll out the cookies. I'm going to have to try that.
