Coconut Macaroon Cookie Sandwiches

I love this twist on the classic cookie…It’s a Coconut Macaroon Cookie Sandwich! Two for the price of one.

As I sit here an type this post out, I have a spoonful of frosting at my left, a Diet Coke at my right and my husband just left for a “run”.

Annoying.

Also, I have these shoes in my virtual “Shopping Cart”, knowing full well I will not buy them. But adding them to the cart feels good, doesn’t it?

AND I haven’t left the house in 3 days (sick kids), so I am thinking I can’t justify $300 shoes for myself just to wear around the house.

ANNNYWAYYY. I am fully annoyed with my frosting eating, non-runnning, shoe-not-buying self.

Luckily I baked.

AND I came up with these Coconut Macaroon Cookie Sandwiches, which I am fairly certain are a new invention.

I may not be a runner. Or have any will power what-so-ever…but I CAN bake.

There’s always that.

These cookies are perfectly easy…only a few ingredients!

Start with some egg whites, sugar and vanilla…Beat them together until it’s foamy and the sugar is just about dissolved.

Then press them down a bit. You don’t want a huge fat sandwich. Or maybe you. In that case don’t smush.

Bake them up. I played around with bake-time on these…some I baked a little longer to get a crispier cookie, some a little less making them very chewy.

Up to you.

While they are cooling mix up your simple chocolate filling. It’s the creamiest chocolate frosting ever…

Just whisk together some powdered sugar and cocoa powder…

And then mix that with some butter and Evaporated Milk (not to be confused with Sweetened Condensed)..or you could use heavy cream.

  1. I love coconut. I even put 1/2 teaspoon of cold pressed organic coconut oil in my coffee each morning instead of creamer. Being on a reduced Gluten diet, these will be perfect for my coffee or tea cookies. I look forward to Pinning your coconut recipes.

  2. I am sure my husband would love these cookies. He just loves coconut cookies and especially with chocolate!
