I recently recieved a sample of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and had an oportunity to review it in a recipe if I so chose, but was under no obligation. I had not previously cooked or baked with coconut oil so I was anxious to give this a try and this seemed like the perfect recipe.
I think the remake of this recipe turned out awesome (better than the original)! See how pretty these look?
Not only did the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil enhance the flavor of the cookies, but they look so much prettier since they didn't spread out and get really thin. It was definitely a good choice to replace the butter in this recipe with coconut oil.
The coconut oil is more concentrated, so I reduced the amount down to 3/4 cup vs. 1 cup of butter in the original recipe. The dough is very crumbly, but just press firmly when making the balls. I can't wait for the BF to give this new version a try!
1/2 cup raisins
1-1/4 cups packed flaked coconut
1 cup crushed cornflakes
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1-1/4 cups flour

often. . .it is well seasoned!
