I have a new baking obsession: sandwich cookies. The cupcake craze that has fueled a rise in mom-and-pop bakeries seems to have overshadowed the humble sandwich cookie. But what can be a more perfect treat than two crisp wafers held together by a delicious frosting?
The thing I like best about sandwich cookies is the ability to be creative. You can make peanut butter cookies and stick them together with vanilla frosting or plain old sugar cookies and join them with chocolate mint frosting. The possibilities are endless.
Or you can make a whole bunch of different kinds of cookies and frosting, invite a bunch of people over and have a mix and match party. Everyone will have the freedom of choice for their own cookies and filling.
