the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 30

Day 30 of the 34 cookies of Christmas 2006 brings us back to the warm tropical shores of Hawai'i, with a shortbread inspired by and packed full of toasted coconut. We take a traditional Scottish shortbread, into which we add as much fresh grated and toasted coconut, coconut oil, and coconut extract as the dough can support, cut it into strips prior to baking, and drizzle with the finest Belgian milk chocolate after it cools. It is a buttery, crumbly shortbread that satisfies even the most intense lover of coconut. Personally, it is one of our favorites, and is perfect as a sophisticated cookie to be eaten year-round.
