One of the first batches of cookies I baked was Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. The dough is very easy to work with chocolate dough, made with cocoa. Dorie had some great hints about rolling out the dough but since I haven't bought spacers yet, I just rolled it out as evenly as possible, stuck it in the freezer and cut the rounds when I was ready to bake.
They baked up perfectly--I was surprised at how well they held their shape.
The filling is simple, spreads well, tasted great and was just the right amount.
I took these to a potluck pig roast and they were much enjoyed by all. One woman asked about them before she tried them and took just one. Soon she was back for another ...and another ...and another! I think I'll be making these again and I look forward to "playing around" with them.
We're off to a good start with Dorie's Cookies! Check here to see what the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers baked this week.
