Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

I think I’m done with carrot cake cookies. Really. This is the last batch and then I’m moving on! Unlike the other carrot cookies which were borderline wholesome and could pass for breakfast, this version is 100% dessert. The recipe was posted on a bulletin board called Mouse Buzz where Disney Vacation Club members chat […]

peanut butter sandwich cookies

The other day someone asked me if I thought 4 sticks of butter (1 pound) was too much for a recipe. Expecting to find the 4 sticks butter balanced out by 3 or 4 cups of flour and plenty of sugar, I took a look at the recipe, which happened to be this one – […]

lemon sandwich cookies

I hardly ever make sandwich cookies because I prefer packaged. There, I said it. Nothing, not even the homemade “copycat” versions, compare with Oreos. Newman’s Own ginger sandwiches are the best in the ginger category, and for lemon, my vote goes to Lance “Lem-o Lunch” found mostly in hospital cafeterias, gas stations in the south […]

Fuzz went across the street to play on her friend’s Slip ‘n Slide, Todd took a quick nap, and I played with Smilebox and uploaded photos. We finally got around to laundry, but not before turning out a fresh batch of cookies. […]

Last week a Cookie Madness reader mentioned a whoopie pie she ate at Disney World’s MGM Studios — specifically, a carrot cake whoopie pie. Until then, I’d never heard of a carrot cake flavored whoopie pie and for the past few days, haven’t been able to get the idea out of my mind. Without an […]

A few years ago, I took a food and wine pairing class with Andrea Immer. One of the recipes she gave the class was “Soft Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Cherries and Mascarpone”. When I looked at the recipe I could tell the cookies were really just gussied up Chocolate Whoopie Pies — big, soft, fat, […]

Easy Nutella Sandwich Cookies

by on July 23, 2006 · 14 comments

The original version of this recipe came from a book called Desserts 1-2-3. It’s a quick three-ingredient recipe designed for people who love the flavor of Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread. The cookie shell is kind of dry and not terribly exciting, but when you split the shell and stuff it with Nutella, it’s delicious. My […]
