TWD- Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

I am a couple of days late on this post.  I'm not proud of it.  But I am proud that I made these cookies!    
This month the participants chose two recipes to post.  I chose to make the Peanut Butter Change-Ups first.  This week I made these Chocolate Sandwich Cookies.
I found these to be very easy to mix up.  At first I thought the dry ingredients would never get blended in...but then suddenly it was a dough!  Rolling it between two pieces of parchment was easy and cleanup a snap.  I wasn't sure I rolled them quite thin enough.   Mistake number two was not waiting until the cookies were cool enough and my filling melted a bit.  I consider myself a novice when it comes to baking so they are not perfect.  But they are delicious and I will definitely have these on my repeat list!  Especially with the holidays coming up!  I was wondering how they might taste with a peppermint filling!   Since there are only two of us here, I only made half the recipe.  It was perfect as it made about 12 cookies!
The Tuesdays with Dorie group is baking from Dorie Greenspan's new book, Dorie's Cookies.  The posts will be the first and third Tuesdays of the month and can be linked at the main Tuesdays with Dorie website here.   This recipe can be found in the Dorie's Cookies on page 306 or here

Your hearts look great! I hadn't even considered making them for Christmas but that's a good idea specially since Dorie mentioned that we can make them in any shape we want.

Oh, hearts are so nice and so pretty. These were fun to make and I think I would definitely make them again and I think they are going to make a nice addition to a cookie tray this Christmas. You did great. I can't wait to see what we make next.

These were delicious. I think a mint filling would be perfect for the holidays.

These were good, weren't they. And melted filling or no, I bet they tasted great.
