 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Cup           Unsalted butter
    8      Ounce         Ground pecan
      2/3  Cup           Sugar
      2/3  Cup           Flaked coconut
    2      Tablespoon    Milk
    2      Tablespoon    All purpose flour
    2      Teaspoon      Vanilla
   12      Ounce         Coarsely chopped semisweet
                         -chocolate
    2      Ounce         Coarsely chopped unsweetened
                         -chocolate
 
 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.)
