1  c  Unsalted butter
8  oz  Ground pecan
2/3  c  Sugar
2/3  c  Flaked coconut
2  tb  Milk
2  tb  All purpose flour
2  ts  Vanilla
12  oz  Coarsely chopped semisweet
2  oz  Coarsely chopped unsweetened

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Line baking sheet with foil. Line work surface with waxed paper. Melt butter in heavy medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients except chocolate and stir well. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared sheet, spacing 4 inches apart (about 5 cookies per sheet). Keep remaining batter warm over very low heat. Bake cookies 10 minutes. Slip foil off sheet. Let cookies cool until firm, about 10 minutes. Using thin spatula, transfer cookies to waxed paper. Repeat with remaining cookie batter, stirring well before using. Melt chocolates in double boiler over gently simmering water; stir until smooth. Take 2 cookies of similar size. Spread bottom of 1 cookie with 1 teaspoon melted chocolate. Top chocolate with second cookie, pressing gently to form "sandwich." Repeat with remaining cookies. Let cool. (Can be prepared 1 month ahead and frozen. Store between layers of waxed paper. Bring to room temperature before serving.)
