My brother's quest to find a filled toffee cookie inspired me to spend hours in the kitchen coming up with a winning combination. Of the 14 kinds of cookies I bake each Christmas, these are the first to disappear.
My soft, not-too-sweet chocolate cookies are filled with a heavenly cream filling. Kids of all ages devour them! Whenever my family comes to visit, these are the treats they always requests.—Salvatore Bertolino, Indiana, Pennsylvania
From Walkerton, Ontario, Janice Poechman sent in the recipe for these melt-in-your-mouth sandwich cookies with a scrumptious filling. "I helped my sister make these in high school when she needed a project in her home economics class," jots Janice. "She got an A+!"
The inspiration for this cute cookie came from my sister's description of a hazelnut cookie she tried in Italy. She declared my version to be a wonderful approximation. My family likes to help fill and trim them. —Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois
