Would not make this again.
I found the dough to be very tough and unmanageable. Also, the baked cookies were horrible since the dough tasted just like the recipe indicated - flour and water. Maybe crisco would be a good addition to the dough. 1 star

My mother used to bake these for me when I was a little boy. She passed away when I was 15 so now my sister makes them for me as a Christmas treat. My wife has used the pie dough trick and tried them with chopped nuts. However, nothing beats the coconut!!! 5 stars

I didn't care for the dough part of this recipe. I used my pecan tarts recipe for the dough and they turned out EXCELLENT!!! Also, I used mini muffin tins just like I do for the pecan tarts. Here is the dough recipe I used: 2 Sticks of Butter or Margarine
2 Large Cream Cheese & 2 Cups Flour. Then I went from there and used the fudge filling in this recipe. I love this fudge filling better than my pecan now! Directions: tiny amount of dough roll and put in Greased tart or mini muffin pan spread up the sides and then put filling inside each cavity. Bake 350* 20-30 minutes or until brown.

These are my mothers favorite cookies as well as my children. My wife and I find the tart part of the recipe a little difficult , so we sometimes swap a favorite pie crust recipe. These taste great and don't last long. I definetely recommend them and would suggest try making them a few times to get the hang of it. 5 stars
