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).

To see what everyone else made for Tuesdays with Dorie this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD  website.

  1. I put five cookies on my plate as well for my post tomorrow. Yours look much neater, I'm kind of messy with things like this. I love the idea of the embossing, that looks so special and pretty on your cookies...you are such a star. xo

  2. I also made a half batch and it made a ton! I cut them a little thinner than suggested though and I liked that they weren't too thick to bite into. I'll be making these again - they got rave reviews!

  3. these look delicious - I love oreos and have tried making them at home and was surprised they were fairly easy but your roller really makes these look really gorgeous with the imprints - never heard of such a thing!

  12. Oreos are extraordinarily sweet so a less sickly version sounds good to me! I'm impressed at how neat they are too.

  13. LOVE Oreos but never buy them. Sometimes they are sweeter than what I want/need. I definitely catch up and make these.
