Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 148
A very rich, very addicting cookie. Tastes best when cookies are stored in a tight container with several pieces of bread at the bottom. You may need a little extra milk to get the filling to the right consistency.

Dawn's Easy Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 170
As a Southern girl, I love baking from scratch and red velvet cakes are a must for the holidays. I usually make one every Christmas, especially one for my brother-in-law David. This year was so busy, I just didn't have time to make him one, but I am always making cake mix cookies for my girls as a quick snack in the afternoons after school, so I whipped up a batch of these gems for him for Christmas. They are out of this world! You don't just have to make them for holidays they are wonderful anytime, see for your self.

Chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling. I use reconstituted powdered egg whites for the filling instead of fresh since they won't be cooked.

"Wow...these are amazing! I bake a lot of stuff (and I mean a LOT), but these are serious stand-outs. Everyone raved about them. They're really pretty too." – CookinBug
Linzer Torte Cookies

Given to me by a chef who sweet-talked the recipe out of a street vendor in Peru. These alfajores are to die for.
