Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup almond paste
  • Coconut filling:
  • 1/3 cup sweetened coconut
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter, room temperature

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

Step 2

In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 3

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Step 4

Whisk together in a separate bowl, flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Add in 3 additions to creamed mixture.

Step 5

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill while preparing the coconut filling.

Step 6

Stir together coconut and butter in a small bowl. Set aside until needed.

Step 7

Remove dough from refrigerator. Pat out a generous tablespoonful of dough into a fat circle. Place about 1/2 tsp of almond paste in the center and make a little depression. Spoon 1/2 tsp of coconut filling in the middle of it.

Step 8

Pat out another generous tablespoonful of dough and lay over top of filling. Like working with a pie crust, pinch the bottom and top edges together and gently mold into a burger-like shape. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue until all the dough is used up.

Step 9

Bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will be set but still a little soft. After 10 minutes, remove to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in a covered container.
