Pampered Chef: Homemade Samoas (Girl Scout Cookies)

    I was checking out a blog that I've posted about before (Gourmet Mom on-the-Go) and found an entry she made that shares someone's version of Girl Scout Cookies (the Samoa's)

    Here's the recipe:

    1 box shortbread cookies
    6 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1-4 cups toasted coconut (depending on how much you want)
    1 cup chocolate chips

    (Optional) To make handling easier you can dip the bottoms of the cookies in melted chocolate first and let them sit to thoroughly dry.
    Place each shortbread cookie in cup of a greased muffin tin.
    In 2-quart saucepan over medium-low heat, combine butter, sugar and corn syrup.
    Heat to a full boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
    Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
    Slowly pour in sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly.
    Continue cooking over low heat until candy thermometer reaches 200-210 degrees.
    Remove from heat.
    Stir in vanilla.
    Beat until creamy.
    Immediately stir in toasted coconut and mix well.
    Spoon mixture by teaspoonfuls over shortbread cookies.
    Cool completely.
    Remove cooled cookies from muffin tin onto waxed paper.
    Melt chocolate chips and drizzle thinly in stripes over cookies and let chocolate harden at room temperature.
    Store in airtight container

    The only question I have is which brand of shortbread cookies to use, and what kind has holes in it like that?
