Delicate & crumbly & very much like shortbread! Thankfully, the butter, raisins & coconut disguised the taste of the yucky walnuts which I chopped quite fine. Thanx Fay!
These are lovely shortbread-like cookies. I like the mild coconut flavor and the bits of chewy raisin and rich walnut. Very good with a cup of tea. They're not chewy at all- they're tender and crumbly, like I said before, like shortbread. I've never made cookies before with powdered sugar in them (at least that I can remember...) and I think that the powdered sugar gives these cookies that delicate texture. Very nice flavors- a little different from other cookies of this sort (shortbread-like that is) which are usually plainer. Mine did not turn very golden in the oven, only the bottoms did. Maybe a higher cooking temperature (maybe 350F?) would help with this?? I'm not sure. I got exactly 15 cookies from this recipe. They're rather rich tasting between the butter, nuts and coconut so that only one is quite satisfying. Very nice. Thanks for posting, Fay. :)
