Black Forest Icebox Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min. + cooling
My family loves these. I left out the brandy because well my eight year old didn’t need it. I used a piping bag to put the mascarpone mix on the wafers and had no problem with them breaking.
The flavor of these cookies was very good but here's a pointer. Buy TWO boxes of the wafers. When you are spreading the cheese the wafers are delicate and break very easily (insert curse words here :-). I ended up not having enough left in the box to put on tops--had to run to the store at 11pm! They also soften up tremedously. When you first make them they are crisp and actually messy to eat. I left them in the fridge overnight and they are really great tasting this morning but may be too soft by this evening. Also, I left out the brandy--didn't want to spend $20 a bottle for just 1 teaspoon.
