I'm going to try this for my son-in-law, who loves coconut. I may omit the flour in the filling & add cornstarch, if it needs it.

This recipe has been in Taste of Home before. They were called mountain cookies and were my husband's favorite. I used to make them at Christmas time before he passed away.

I can't wait to try these cookies. It sounds just like a recipe my mother used to make that was lost when she passed away. It was one of my favorites.
