This cookie helps to fill the cookie tray for those holiday trays and is not hard to make. It is a nice replacement for the macaroon cookie for those of you who like coconut but don't want to fuss with the macaroon recipe. You can double up on the coconut and not put in the chopped nuts for the macaroon style.

I personally like to add a dash of cinnamon to the bottom layer and also to the filling to give it a little more zing. There's always room for a dash of cinnamon when you are using brown sugar.

Over the years I have collected and tested many of these recipes that I put on my hubpages. This recipe came to me from a friend at a local women's club. I was the editor of the newsletter and this recipe was sent to me by one of the members to add to the cooking column.

I have made these many times and my children and grandchildren have all loved them. I suggest this cookie be made for afternoon cards or an evening of cards with the ladies. It is sure to be a hit.
