Ingredients

Coconut Fluff Filling: 

Directions

Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper. 

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, shortening and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg and egg white and beat until incorporated. Add half the flour mixture and half the coconut milk and beat just until blended. Add the remaining flour and coconut milk with the vanilla and beat until blended.

Using a 1/4-cup ice cream scoop, drop the batter into 12 mounds on the lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart (or make 24 mounds using well-rounded tablespoons). Sprinkle half the mounds with coconut (or all of the mounds, if you like). 

Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, until they begin to crack and are firm to the touch, about 12 minutes for large cookies and 10 minutes for small ones. Slide the parchment paper with the cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely. 

Use a thin metal spatula to lift the cookies off the parchment paper. Spread the flat side of the plain cookies generously with Coconut Fluff Filling. Top with the coconut-topped cookies, pressing lightly to seal them together.

Coconut Fluff Filling: 

Beat the butter and marshmallow creme in a large bowl with a mixer at medium-high speed until fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, coconut, coconut milk, vanilla and coconut extract until smooth.
