Tiffany Sandwich Cookies

These cookies came from my mom’s best high school friend’s mom, Mrs. Tiffany.  These cookies are a special treat with coconut, oatmeal, and cornflakes with a chocolate cream these filling.  YUM!  They do take some time to make, which is why they are usually a once a year Christmas treat.  They are well worth it though.
