I was inspired by this recipe on Kristi's blog, Live and love out loud. I changed a few things to make it my own and it is now my favourite cookie recipe. The coconut oil in these cookies makes them smell so delicious. When you bite into one you will feel like you are laying on a beach towel, sipping on a pina colada, basking in the warm glorious sun. These cookies might just make these last few weeks of winter manageable. You must try these cookies, they will change your life!
Because we are working with coconut oil, you need to make sure that you cool the dough before you pop the dough rounds into the oven. You have to do this because the oil melts at a faster rate then butter would and so you want it to be cooler than if you used butter. When I'm making cookies with coconut oil, sometimes I will create the dough rounds, place them on a plate and then place them in the freezer. You should be able to transfer the dough rounds from the plate to the cookie sheet. I do this to speed up the process, that way once one cookie sheet is done baking, I can easily just place the already cooled cookie dough balls on the cookie sheet.
If you don't have coconut oil, that's okay! Just replace with butter and you can skip the whole freezing process!
Paxton sure did enjoy these cookies too!
Oh and I almost forgot! 3 days later, these glorious cookies are still so soft and chewy! I know, I can't believe they have lasted that long! But still, now I know that they stay really soft and chewy.
