I have to admit Ambrosia is one of my favorite things to eat. It's delightfully retro and such a burst of all kinds of flavors in every single bite. But don't fool yourself -- this is a very labor intensive dessert to make if you go scratch. It will take you at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours to prepare everything (the coconut was a real pain) and you have...

But I gave it another try...actually following Julia Child's recipe suggestion and it turned out perfect. Everything else was pretty easy but very time consuming.

"These cookies are so good. Here's what I would suggest though: do not slice them to thick -- keep it thin for a crisp cookie. Use a sharp knife to slice them too or they will fall apart. After dipping them in chocolate, place them on wax paper on a cookie sheet so they don't stick. My kids loved these and so did I -- they have a lovely texture"
