These cookies are so delicious and nostalgic and taste JUST like the ones we all know and love. The best part is that they are so easy to make and now you get to have copycat Samoas Cookies allll year long!
Cutting Out Samoas Cookie Dough
I used a 3.5″ round cookie cutter to cut out as many circles as I could then used the end of a large piping tip to cut the center circle out. If you have a small cookie cutter for the center that of course will work well too. If worst comes to worst and you don’t have any small cutters, use a small pairing knife to cut a circle out of the center…but please be careful 🙂
Use the small circles that were cut out from the center to scrap and reroll all the dough to get as many cookies as you can! Nothing should go to waste!
Tips For Making Samoas Cookies
The toughest part of this recipe will be evenly spreading the caramel coconut mixture on top of each cookie. It’s a bit of a sticky process but is so worth it. As I suggest in the recipe, have a small bowl of water ready. Lightly dip your fingers and fork into the water to keep the coconut mixture from sticking to you too much. That way you get to add an even amount on the cookies easier.
