Ok, so I feel duped on this recipe - seeing the option for store-bought cookie dough made it sound like it would be easy - that's what I needed for a cookie swap. TOTALLY WRONG! Dividing the cookies into 4's and rolling individually in coconut actually took FOREVER - way more that the 28 minutes they quoted for "prep". (Admittedly it went faster after my young ones went down for naps, but still). Ok, they tasted good, but I don't think these will be a repeat - I need something quicker - and yes I would be willing to put in more time and effort than usual for a good cookie that would become a tradition, but this won't make the cut. Good to eat but a pain to make. On the technical note - I used natural, unsweetened coconut and they tasted great. Also, I ran out of chocolate and had several un-frosted cookies at the end which is a total bummer. Sure, maybe i used to much on early ones, but it couldn't be by this much - probably 1 dozen cookie sandwiches were shorted.

I made these last year for Christmas - fancy looking but very easy to put together. Will certainly make again as they were quite tasty and a big hit!
