These are phenomenal. I made bars instead of cookies and made my own caramel instead of using store bought candies. Instead of dipping the bottom of each bar into chocolate I decided to pour the chocolate chips onto the shortbread crust as soon as it came out of the oven. I covered it with a sheet tray for a minute allowing the chips to melt. Then I spread the melted chocolate chips with an offset spatula and put the pan into the fridge to set the chocolate. When I was ready with the caramel/coconut mixture I spread that on the bottom crust of the shortbread after inverting the pan. The whole process was much easier than making cookies and the yummy outcome was the same.
Thankfully I cut the recipe in half and still got 3 dozen cookies. I say thankfully because I was so tired of putting them together I just gave up and left over 1 dozen of them plain. These are a lot of work and have many steps. If I do ever attempt them again I will try store bought dough and at least cut one step out. I do as much as I can from scratch because we have food allergies in my home. I rated them 4 stars because the flavor is very good. The one thing I would definitely suggest is to have extra melted caramel on hand and spread it on the cookie before you attempt to stick the topping. You need it to act as the glue or else the topping will just fall off. Super frustrating after all of that work. They are so filling you can only eat 2 anyway so 24 was plenty for us.
I Love SAMOA COOKIES!!! They are my favorite type of girl scout cookies!!! This recipe is well made and is SOOOOO DELICIOUS! I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to make a cookie that is known and loved by everyone. I would not change the recipe It is perfect the way it is. Try this recipe and you will not be disapointed
Caramel hateful to work with. Directions didn't say to make cookies into donut shape. Only after making first batch my son reminded me to make donut shape. (Didn't look at above pic). Will try homemade caramel tomorrow.....
These turned out very well! I made 36 cookies from the recipe. I found that I only needed half the caramel and coconut though. Getting the caramel to stick on top of the cookie (instead of your hands) was the only tricky part.
Wow. These are a marvelous cookie perhaps a bit tricky to make mostly dealing with putting the sticky coconut mixture on the circles. But they are an absolute winner everyone loved them and has begged for more.
