You Put the Lime in the Coconut

Well school's about over.  I mean, FOR GOOD.  So I'll be spending the next few days posting pictures and info about stuff I made this year but never posted.  After that, we're moving shops.  I'm seriously done with law school, so there will be no more lawschoolscooking.  The new digs are in the works and will be announced at a later time.  But first...

I made shortbread cookies a while back.  But not just any shortbread cookies (me, normal?), Cilantro Lime Shortbread Cookies, made with coconut oil instead of butter.  Yuuuuummmmyyyyy.  They turned out amazingly well.  I just love the flavors of cilantro and lime, and I've been dreaming about these shortbread cookies for over a year.  

Shortbread cookies are my favorite cookies to mess with.  You can add all kinds of stuff to them and it turns out great.  In the past, I've added dried rosemary, black pepper, lemon, and earl grey tea.  Each time, they were decadent.  I've tried adding tea to other baked goods before, and it just didn't work out.  But when it comes to shortbread, go wherever your imagination takes you.

Just find a general shortbread recipe and start adding stuff!

Here is the dough ready to bake.  I cut them into rounds, then mark lines with a fork for easy breaking after they're done.

See?  All done.  Nice and brown around the edges.

I'd love to hear about what YOU think would be a good addition to shortbread!
