Chocolate Chip Coconut Sandwich Cookies

This recipe has appeared on this blog in the past in a different form and one of the most fuss-free cookies to make, Chocolate Chip cookie Squares. This is my Mom’s recipe that was undoubtedly made hundreds of times during my childhood and always had the addition of coconut.

All these years later, I decided to try them as drop cookies with a chocolate ganache center to sandwich them together and they turned out beautifully. I expect there will be a few of these in the freezer for the holiday season this year.

I like to use 50% dark chocolate chips for this recipe, but you can use semisweet as well.
