I'm so glad you posted this fantastic recipe here, I thought I'd lost it! I've made these for years and can vouch that these are literally TEN star cookies. They're also beautiful on a Christmas plate, just gorgeous. Hopefully someone will post a picture of them. They're a shortbread-type cookie, filled with a delicious coconut filling, and then drizzled in chocolate. A perfect holiday plate cookie!

My SIL made these cookies and loved them (she just passed the recipe to me). She said they are best when warm.
