No holiday cookie plate would be complete without some type of chocolate cookie. Don’t you agree?
So how about a chocolate sandwich cookie? The one thing I don’t like about sandwich cookies is that when you eat one cookie – you are really eating two cookies. But you only get the enjoyment of eating one cookie. Make sense!?
So when I make sandwich cookies I make them small. They are almost bite size – really two bites. That way I can actually eat two of them and not feel like I’ve eaten four cookies!
I love these cookies – and let’s just say I ate more than two (that would actually be more than four since they are two cookies in one.)
The dough needs to be refrigerated or frozen before baking so plan ahead.
The dough is then sliced into 1/4 inch slices.
After baking they filled with a lovely chocolate frosting. There is sour cream in the frosting which gives it a nice smooth texture.
This recipe was slightly adapted from Better Homes and Gardens 100 Best Cookies. There is a reason why it is in there – it’s a BEST cookie!!
