Here is one snowball everyone will want to catch -- a pair of domed coconut cookies filled back to back with vanilla buttercream. The recipe doubles easily, should you need to make enough for a whole gang of gourmands.
I wanted smaller cookies for Christmas cookie trays, so I didn't sandwich them (way too big). Instead, I frosted each cookie with the icing, then dipped the tops in a mix of chopped coconut to which some red and green sprinkles were added. They are delicious, moist, and very pretty with a bit of color against the snow-white coconut. And best thing is that they freeze very well after icing, and up to a month with no decrease in flavor or texture. Awesome.
Now that the holidays are over... I now have the time to do some baking (lol) I have this issue Oct. 2010 I made theses for my boyfriend for an early Valentine's Gift and my dad did a test drive and said "YUM>>>Good Cookies".
My husband and I really enjoy this recipe and I don't even like like coconut that much.
