What are your favorite cookie sandwiches? My dad loved the packages of sandwich cookies - chocolate, lemon, or vanilla, which I think was his favorite. We almost always had them for lunch, along with a bologna or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a bag of chips, and a banana or an apple.
I always saved my cookies for last because they were my favorite. I'd twist the two cookies a part and eat the half that didn't have the cream. Then I'd twist a second cookie apart and do the same. Then I'd put the two cream layers together to make a double filled cookie. Genius! I know, right, lol.
I invented double stuffed cookies before they were even a thing! (Well at least I think I did anyway.)
Have you ever tried to make homemade sandwich cookies? Sweet little cookies with cream filling or frosting in between. Yum! Sometimes when I make chocolate chip cookies I make them into a sandwich.
I take two slightly cooled cookies. Spread peanut butter on the bottom half of one of them and top with the other cookie. These are sooo good. I can only eat one or two of these sandwich cookies, because they're so rich and delicious. I dare you to try it out!
So what's the best type of cookie for making sandwich cookies you ask? Well they need to be slightly crunchy. Not too crunchy because when you bite into a really crunchy cookie with filling in the middle, the filling squishes out the sides, leaving you with not enough filling for the rest of the cookie. So slightly crunchy.
They can be any size, however, a medium size is best. Not too small and not to big. A two bite cookie is best.
And what kind of cookie makes the best cookie sandwich? Well, I could say that any cookie will do, however, you will need to take into consideration the two tips I mentioned above - slightly crunchy, so maybe not a ginger snap.
Some chocolate chip cookies aren't too crunchy, so try one out to see how it works. You can always make your own, of course. Find a recipe that bakes up with a slight crunch and then make them the right size and you're good to go.
