Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.57 stars
We like to call them homemade 'oreos or soft 'oreos.'

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.64 stars
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.

Southern Moon Pies

Now you can make this Southern favorite at home. Full of chocolate and marshmallow goodness! Vanilla extract may be substituted with coconut or mint extract.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies I

Rating: 3.86 stars
Excellent frozen. I have played with this over the years, and come up with several variations. At the holidays, I have added 1 teaspoon peppermint extract to the filling in lieu of the vanilla, and have also used crushed peppermint candy in the filling. I have also dipped them in chocolate, and coated them in confectioners' sugar.

Dawn's Easy Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.39 stars
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.

These cookies are called 'cat's tongues'. They are easy to make. This is a French recipe, but it has already been converted to conventional measurements.
