Sugary & Buttery - Raspberry Sandwich Cookies with Coconut Cream

Happy Valentines Day! I know – I am a little late this year. But hey, these raspberry sandwich cookies are great year round! I love the combination of raspberry and coconut. Divine. I purposefully made them bite-size small (just 1 inch) which might haven not been a good idea since I tend to eat a lot more of them the smaller they are…

I used freeze dried raspberry powder since it has a very intensive, natural and distinctive raspberry flavor. You could substitute it with raspberry flavor and pink food color (and a little bit more flour) but I don’t recommend that. Instead, why don’t you make your own fruit powder? Yep, it is more than worth a try and real easy. Stefani of the Cupcake Project tells you how in this great tutorial, all you need is fresh fruit, an oven and time.
