Cook's Notes

You can use other flavors of ice cream (or frozen yogurt), such as chocolate, rum-raisin, coffee, or coconut. Slicing cookies from a log of dough (instead of rolling out and cutting) is an easy way to ensure they are of equal size for perfect sandwiches.

    mine came out a big melted mess, they all ran together. i did everything but freeze the log--i did freeze it for 30 mins but it wasn't firm and i didn't have time to wait, so went ahead and cut them up and baked them. and got a bit tray of melted goo. after it hardened it was quite tasty like a coconut candy, but was not a cookie at all. i guess the freezing step is a MUST as i did everything else correctly.

    My husband is a coconut and cookie freak! I decided to try these wonderfully crispy, tasty cookies yesterday. I like to make cookies for my husband's lunch, which I pack for him about 3 times a week, so the ice cream filling wouldn't work. Instead, I substituted a slightly sweetened cream cheese filling and froze them individually. HUGE hit. I didn't quite get the yield, just 10 sandwiches but I could have made the "log" smaller. The cookies do expand some during baking.
