Coconut sandwich cookies



When I made this coconut cookies the first time, I spread the cookie dough on cookie sheet, and cut it with round shape cookie cutter after baked, the shape don't looks good  ( see picture below),
Then  I try to make it again, This time I scoop the cookie batter with a small size scoop,it's look better
