1.В В Adjust the oven racks to the lower-middle and upper-middle positions and preheat the oven to 350В°F. Grease an eight-inch square baking dish with coconut oil and set on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet (for easy cleanup). Line another rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, stir the chilled coconut oil, coconut milk, and melted coconut oil together until the coconut oil forms small clumps. Stir the oil-milk mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just incorporated and the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

4.В В Using a greased quarter-cup measure, scoop and drop eight mounds of dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet, spaced about one-and-a-half inches apart. Toss the remaining two teaspoons palm sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the cookie tops. Bake the cookies until puffed and lightly browned on the bottom (about 10 minutes). Cookies will be flat and delicately tender.

5.В В Remove the cookies from the oven and set aside. Place the fruit in the oven and bake until it is hot and bubbling and has released its juices (20 to 30 minutes).
