cute little cookie

I'm in love with these cute little sandwich cookies. They were fun to assemble and are even more fun to eat. They're not overwhelmingly sweet, but still so satisfying. I used this recipe, but made a few changes.

Conscious changes I made:
-substituted coconut oil for half of the butter, used smart balance for the other half
-coarse pink sea salt (always)
-added 1/2 cup coarsely chopped Spanish almonds to the icing
-used organic unsweetened coconut flakes and toasted them with agave (this makes all the difference in the world)

Accidental Changes I made:
-I forgot to add coconut to the actual cookies. Oops. But I just put tons of it in the middle. Honestly with the coconut flour and coconut oil, the coconut flavoring was perfect. So either way works fine.
