A classic sandwich cookie (aka homemade oreos) with a chocolate cream filling.
With all the desserts these past couple weeks you’d think I would be done with sweets. You might even think all the baking and cookie-making will soon run its course, and you’d perhaps venture a guess that I’d be happy to skip a few days. But you’d be wrong, because I’ve become quite singularly obsessed with the thought of these cookies.
Blame it on the holidays or just an intense chocolate craving, but these thin chocolate wafer sandwich cookies have been lingering in my thoughts. Not to mention that as the days get shorter and colder, retiring to the kitchen to fire up the oven sounds quite inviting, and I think we can all agree that homemade cookies make the best gifts.
With a pleasant proportion of cookie to chocolate, these will certainly be making a repeat appearance in my cookie tin this year. But if you’re like me, you hardly need an excuse to bake any time of the year.
Delicate and tender with an almost shortbread-like quality and creamy chocolate filling, this updated classic is a sweet comfort.
The tender, lightly sandy cookies roll and re-roll easily thanks to the lack of gluten, which means your little helpers can get their hands dirty too and get in on the cookie making fun. The minute sandy wafers are just barely sweet with the bittersweet taste of cocoa contrasting nicely with the milder and creamy chocolate filling.
Eat these dunked in the milk of your choice (coconut, almond and cashew are all wonderful here if you’re going the non-dairy route) or with a cup of coffee for an afternoon treat, or package them up for a thoughtful homemade gift.
