Here’s a sweet little treat that is perfect any time of the year!  I found this recipe in good ol’ Martha’s holiday cookies magazine.  Yes, another cooking magazine I just couldn’t say no to.  We’ve talked about that little problem of mine!

Any who, these babies are flippin amazing.  If you like coconut, and let me tell you I do, you MUST whip up a batch of these.  I mean, two little coconut cookies sandwiching a delicious sugary, vanilla filling?   These really ROCK!  The recipe says to refrigerate the finished cookies before serving. I like them refrigerated overnight to be honest.  This gives the filling a chance to “set” a bit so it doesn’t squish out when you eat the cookies.  More importantly, it makes the cookies nice and chewy. Super YUM!  I encourage you to make these as soon as possible.  I think you should just make a batch for yourself. You Sooo deserve it!
