coconut oil question

addicted2cake | May 23, 2014 10:40 AM

I would like to make some cookies using coconut oil in place of butter. There is confusing info in web-land, so I thought I'd try my questions here. Has anyone made cookies using this substitution? Can you sub 1:1? Is it necessary to melt the coconut oil or can you cream with sugar as you would butter? I know that coconut oil hardens when put into the fridge. Many recipes say to chill the dough before baking cookies. Does anyone know how long it could take for the dough to come to room temperature? And lastly, what are the differences in taste and texture when subbing coconut oil for butter? I'm interested because I have dairy issues and would like to eat a cookie that tastes really good without the butter. Thanks for any help.
