    rjsilvester Yes coconut oil has saturated fat but is a different type, it's molecular structure is different and it actually lowers cholesterol. That's why it's a health food.  -  21 Mar 2017


    You have to press the dough hard into a circle because it's crumbly. It doesn't flatten when baked. The flavor is very nice with the hint of coconut. This recipe came in handy because I ran out of butter  -  18 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
