Raspberry Coconut Cookies- 12 Days of Cookies #ChristmasCookies

Here we go, day 8 of the 12 days of Cookies!  I don't make many sandwich cookies, but these Raspberry Coconut Cookies caught my eye when I was searching through the Taste of Home website. 

I used whole milk, it's what we have on hand.   I used a cookie scoop to get nice uniform cookies so it was easy to assemble the sandwiches.   I used seedless raspberry preserves, since it's what my family prefers.  They'd also be great with cherry or strawberry.   Don't be tempted to pile the filling on, or you'll have a real big mess on your hands!   Thank you to June B for the recipe  :)

                        Raspberry Coconut Cookies


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     3/4           cup  butter -- softened
     1/2           cup  sugar
  1              large  egg
  1           teaspoon  vanilla extract
  2               cups  all-purpose flour
     1/2           cup  flaked coconut
  1 1/2      teaspoons  baking powder
     1/4      teaspoon  salt
                        FILLING:
     1/4           cup  butter -- softened
     3/4           cup  confectioners' sugar
  2          teaspoons  2% milk (I used whole)
     1/2      teaspoon  vanilla extract
     1/2           cup  raspberry preserves (I used seedless)

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, coconut, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Shape into 1-in. balls. Place 1-1/2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten with a glass dipped in flour.

Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.

In a small bowl, beat the butter, confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Place 1/2 teaspoon preserves and a scant teaspoon of filling on the bottoms of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
