1 1/4 tsp

1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
butter (1 stick), softened
1 c

2

1/2 Tbsp

1 c

FILLING

1 c

1/4 tsp

3/4 c

2

3/4 tsp

3/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line Cookie Sheet with Parchment Paper. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda in Mixing Bowl. Combine butter, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla in Mixing Bowl; beat on medium-high speed of electric mixer until well blended. On low speed, add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with milk in two additions; mix well.
2
Using level Small Scoop, scoop batter onto prepared Cookie Sheet 2 in. (5 cm) apart; bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies spring back when lightly pressed. Slide parchment and cookies onto Cooling Rack; cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter.
3
For filling, combine sugar and salt in (2-qt./1.9-L) Saucepan. Gradually whisk in evaporated milk, egg yolks and vanilla using Silicone Sauce Whisk. Add butter; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 8-10 minutes or until temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). Pour into Classic Batter Bowl. Add coconut and pecans; mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour or until cool. Meanwhile, prepare Ganache.
4
To assemble, turn cookies bottom side up. Using slightly scant Medium Scoop, scoop filling onto half of the cookies, pressing down slightly so filling spreads almost to the edge. Spoon 1 tsp (5 mL) ganache on remaining half of cookies. Place one filled cookie on top of ganache, pressing slightly. Garnish, if desired.
