  • “Made up only 1/2 recipe.I used a small ice cream scoop to make the cookies and they really turned out uniform to be matched later with the fillingI cooked them 6 min. in my convection oven and they were perfect.They were especially good to me since they are not too sweet.Next time I will make up the full recipe and change the filling to 1/2 crisco/1/2 butter & a touch of vanilla. The children love them, not only because they are good, but they are individuallypackaged like a special treat..”

  • “we made the cookies from this recipe and filled them with a combination of marshmallow fluff, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar (filling from a diff cookie.) they tasted just like cakesters!!
    we actually made a vanilla version of these.. added a little extra flour and left out cocoa powder.we amazing!!”

  • “I made these yesterday for my son’s bake sale at school and they were a huge hit!I doubled the recipe and probably made them a little bigger, I found that baking them for 7 minutes was perfect.I made 5 dozen sandwich cookies.I will definitely make again, my son wants them for his next treat day at school.”

  • “Truly DECADENT cookies!These were deliciously moist and the cream in the middle was just right for us.I did bake the cookies for 1 minute longer than stated in the recipe to make sure that they set in the middle.Great, easy recipe when you’ve got those chocolate cravings!”

  • “Surprisingly good!Didn’t think I would like them, but they disappeared quickly.Will try a buttercream filling next time.Thnx for posting, Tonkcats.”

  • “We were all really impressed with how much we liked these! I figured I wouldn’t be crazy about the filling since it is mainly shortening, but it was really good. Maybe because of the evaporated milk?? They cookie/cake part is a little sticky because they are so moist, so I recommend not stacking them. If you do, I would try putting waxed paper between each layer. This new addiction is very good at room temperature or chilled. We are toying with the idea of pouring a thin layer of ganache over them and making them taste more like a Ho-Ho or Swiss Cake Roll. ;)”
