Cookie Sandwiches

  We baked Cookie Sandwiches for my daughter's wedding last month and they were a hit! Chewy oatmeal cookies filled with vanilla buttercream flavored with just a hint of Cinnamon, Peanut Butter Cookies with creamy peanut butter buttercream filling and my favorite, Triple Chocolate Cookies with pink strawberry filling. I should have taken a photo of the chocolate ones, but just didn't get a chance before they were gone!

Cookie Sandwiches will be coming this fall at Country Cupboard Cookies!
Cookie Sandwiches are easy to make and a great way to create some wonderful flavor combinations. Take 2 favorite cookies, use a piping bag with a large tip, fill with your favorite buttercream frosting and top with 2nd cookie. I like the ooze of the frosting so I am generous with the filling. Get creative with your buttercream. I've added cinnamon for a spice cookie, peanut butter for chocolate cookies, cut up peanut butter cups, dried berries, mint with a touch a green food coloring, etc. Just be careful to use a large enough tip on your pastry bag if you add ingredients such as fruit and candies to avoid clogging. 

We plan on offering these cookie sandwiches later this fall and for the holiday season this year. I'm picturing a cute handcrafted kraft gift box with bakery twine and filled with assorted cookie sandwiches in flavors of gingerspice, double chocolate and peanut butter. We'll see what we can come up with this year for a new Holiday Cookie Gift. Yes, it is time to brainstorm for Christmas Cookie Gifts!
