Coconut Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate Coconut Icing

I seem to have an addiction to adding coconut to my baking recently. A seriously delicious addiction.

These cookies, are so soft and flavorful, you’ll be thanking me for giving you the idea to use them to make sandwich cookies. Sure, they’re incredibly good by themselves, but why wouldn’t you want to have 2 cookies in 1? That way we can eat more…right??

Okay, I figure that you’re with me now. I paired these deliciously soft coconut oatmeal cookies with a few different fillings. I added jam, I tried a few with peanut butter icing, and a few with a chocolate coconut icing. They’re all delicious, trust me.

Coconut Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

1/2 C Butter

1/2 C Brown Sugar

1/2 C White Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

1 Tsp Coconut Extract

1 C and 2 Tbsp Flour

1/2 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

1 C Oats

1 3/4 C Coconut, flaked

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and beat well. Add the extracts and continue in beat. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and continue to beat. Stir in oats and coconut.

Drop by tablespoons full onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until cookies begin to brown slightly. For a soft oatmeal cookie, remove from oven, and let cool on baking racks.

Once cool, spread desired filling on one cookie, then top with another cookie.

Suggested Fillings:

Raspberry or Strawberry Jam

Peanut Butter Icing

Chocolate Coconut Icing:

1/2 C Butter

1 1/2-2 C Powdered Sugar

1 Tbsp Milk

1 Tsp Coconut Extract

1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 Tbsp Coconut, flaked

Cream the butter, then add half of the powdered sugar. Add the milk and coconut extract and continue to beat. Continue to add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Beat in the cocoa powder and coconut.

    Hi, okay? I was looking for coconut cookies and found your blog. Congratulations, very good the blog!
    Like to know, when you say “C”, it means cup, is not it? But what is the measure of this cup, in mL?
    Thank you.
