View Full Version : ISO Sandwich Cookies Recipes

I'm getting ready to organise what cookies I plan to bake for Christmas.
I bought lots of cookies cutters from WS this weekend and would love to use them. I'm thinking that I'd like to do some cookie sandwiches (i.e. jam filled).
Any favorite recipes? I did run a search, but it's hard to pinpoint 'sandwich cookies' without getting the gazillion cookies threads we have here.
P.S. They don't necessarily have to be light, so please share both the light ones and the 'sinful'. :D

Linzer Cookies are usually jam filled.
I am sure allrecipes.com (http://www.allrecipes.com) will give you a great start, or even Martha Stewart (http://www.marthastewartliving.com).

There are several sammich cookies in my back issues of Martha Holidaze, and a few in Cookies for Christmas, too. Would be happy to look 'em up for you later... Note that almost all recipes for homemade sandwich cookies say "do not fill until serving" and, um, I have found that to be (oooooze!) very good advice.

I posted some Empire Cookies in the past that sound like the ones you are looking for. I try to make them every year.
In checking the link, I just realized that it was a thread you started. Did you ever try them?
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon hot water
1/4 cup candied cherries, chopped
Cream butter. Add sugar, creaming well. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 2 inch rounds, and place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or until very lightly browned at edges. Cool thoroughly.
Spread half of the cookies with jam, and top with remaining cookies.
Combine confectioners' sugar, almond extract, and enough hot water to make a thin icing. Frost tops of cookies. Top each with a small piece of candied cherry.
Makes 24 cookies

Thanks for finding that thread for me. I did recall posting a similar question but it didn't come up in my search.
The empire cookies sound perfect. As I didn't make them last year :rolleyes: , I will this year! :D
There's some other great sandwich cookies on that thread too. Cheers.
Molli, I always forget about allrecipes, thanks. I'll check out the other too. I did a quick search on Martha yesterday, but nothing extensive.
Compass, I'm actually looking for cookies that can be made ahead and/or frozen. So, if any fit the bill in the mags, please share!
