Ingredients

Filling

2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg slightly beaten

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Cookie

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/4 cup milk

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all filling ingredients except coconut and pecans in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir in coconut and pecans. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar and 3/4 cup butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add milk, 2 eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda. Beat at low speed until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes or until top springs back lightly when touched. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread 1 level tablespoonful filling on flat-side of 1 cookie; top with second cookie, flat-side down. Squeeze together gently. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Tip #1

Make cookies and filling ahead and assemble just before serving.

The cookies are great the middle just tasted like butter I made exactly as recipe states. I have made german chocolate cake before so I did not think I would have an issue. Careful with the butter.

Great cookies - I had no problem making them and, I took a deep breath and put them in a heavy zipper bag and into the freezer. When I took them out, they were 95% still perfect. I have no concern about making more and freezing more.
