I baked four types of cookies today for a Derby party tomorrow. Of all the cookies I baked, these ones were the most time-consuming, the most messy and the biggest pain. I had to add more butter to the cookie dough because it was too crumbly. Then I had to mop the floor and clean off all the cookie crumbs everywhere. They are very, very good though. I have seen all kinds of homemade oreo type cookies on blogs this year. I am very excited and happy to say that I tried these today. We loved them and are excited to share them tomorrow at the Derby party. I don't think they'll last long!!
This recipe was found in the latest edition of Martha's Everyday Food Magazine, or you can go here and see the video and recipe. These cookies are made with butter for the cream filing and let me tell you that I love that!! I have been avoiding these cookies simply because I am not a fan of shortening. I don't want to eat it and I don't even want to think about eating it! It's not that I'm really trying to be healthy, it just makes me nauseous!! These cookies are delicious and rich and I'm happy to say that I really felt fulfilled after eating just one!
