TWD - Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
For my second Dorie's Cookies recipe, I have made the Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. if you thought that these looked like Oreos, you are right - Oreos were the inspiration for Dorie's recipe.
I personally think these cookies are much nicer than Oreos. They are not as sweet - in fact, they were not high on the sweetness factor at all, just delightfully chocolatey. The filling was lovely too - half a tablespoon in each cookie is all that you need, and I found that even when I ate a cookie before chilling that the filling was thick enough not to squeeze out. I made a half batch, which still seemed to make a lot of cookies!
I am giving my cookies to the receptionist at my Pilates clinic to celebrate her finishing her music degree. I have a small embossed roller featuring music notes that I bought at The Cake Bake and Sweets Show this year, so I ran it over the cookie dough before baking so that my cookies are personalised for the recipient. I found that the embossing worked best when I pressed a little more firmly (the first batch are not as distinct with the embossing).
