These are so good, they just melt in your mouth. It's heaven.
1 tub of cookie dough
3/4 cup coconut flakes/shredded
2 bars chocolate for melting
Set oven temperature to 350 F.
Take any flavor cookie dough (I used our gluten free Snickerdoodle, but seriously this would be good with any flavor).
Set a few Tbsp of coconut to the side for later. Add the rest of the coconut to the dough. Mix until combine. Roll it out using flour (gluten free All Purpose or regular All Purpose flour). Adding more flour as you need so the dough doesn't stick to the surface or rolling pin. Try to keep them semi-thick, about 1/4 inch thick.
Then cut into rounds using a round cookie cutter (2 inch cutter). Use a smaller cookie cutter or a knife to cut out a small circle in the center.
Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for about 10-12 minutes until golden.
Remove and let cool. This is the time to sprinkle the extra coconut on top of each cookie if you like.
While the cookies are cooling -Heat a double broiler until water becomes hot (or a pot with water, and a smaller top on top for the chocolate). Add chocolate and stir until melted. Don't leave it unattended because you don't want it to over cook and burn. Once melted use a piping bag with a small tip to drizzle the chocolate all across the cookies. You can also make a piping bag out of parchment paper. Here's a how to: http://allrecipes.com/howto/making-a-parchment-paper-cone/.
Fyi: you can also dip the bottoms of the cookies in chocolate if you're really going for it. OR you can use a caramel and chocolate drizzle. Serious stuff.
