I bought a jar of coconut oil at Trader Joe's and I wasn't sure what to do with it. I had a real craving for a chocolte chip cookie, so I decided to substitute coconut oil for the butter in one of my recipes. Oh my! The cookies were SO delicious! They turned out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Just the way I like them! I especially liked the slight hint of coconut flavor in the cookies.
My favorite part about making these cookies was that I didn't have to wait around for the butter to soften. I just opened the jar of coconut oil and started baking. It was great for spur of the moment cookie cravings!
