Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Prepare the filling first. In a 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, stir together the milk and coconut. Combine the cornstarch and 1/2 cup of sugar; stir into the saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  • Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, 1 cup sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the egg and milk. Gradually mix in the sifted ingredients to form a dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into 2 1/2 inch circles with a cookie cutter. Place half of the circles 1 1/2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the filling onto the center of each cookie on the pan. Top with another circle and seal the edges by pinching.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

After reading the reviews I reduced the milk to 1/2 cup for the cookie base and added 1 additional tablespoon of cocoa. Cookies rolled out just fine and tasted delicious. Read More

the solution to the overly moist dough is that it is not 1 cup of milk. It should be 3/4 cup of sour cream. Read More

This recipe does not work. The flour mixture will not form a dough it is too moist. Something is wrong in the ingredients but I'm not sure what it is. Read More

I agree with the other reveiwers. This recipe just doesn't work. I added more flour (about 3cups) and because of the excess flour you couldn't taste the chocolate at all. I through them all away. What a waste. Read More

after following the recipe to the letter there was no poosible way that these cookies could be rolled out. After adding a great deal more flour they still could not be rolled out. I question the amount of milk (1 Cup) in the cookie. Read More

This recipe was horrible. The amount of flour needs to be increased by about 3 more cups. The dough was extremely sticky if you follow the recipe. When my husband tasted the finished product he said it tasted like a pancake with no syrup. I would not recommend this at all. Read More

Absolutely the worst recipe. This isn't a cookie. I ended up trying to make a brownie out of it. Baked it and NO TASTE at all. Really shouldn't even get 1 star Read More

This recipe is no good. Even using the 3/4 cup sour cream instead of milk the dough was very sticky and could not be rolled out. I added more flour and it was still very sticky but I got it to work. But the cookies have no chocolate taste to them! They do taste pretty good lightly sweetened and have a nice touch of coconut but was certainly not chocolatey. I won't be making these again.
