Filled Chocolate Spritz Recipe

I like how the creamy mint filling peeks through between the layers of these sandwich cookies. A chocolate drizzle on top is a flavorful finishing touch.

"Yummy, easy. Better than something from the store."

"I have joined the taste of home just so I could enjoy having the benefits and to review this recipe. I have never written a review before; but these cookies are so good, I had to send in a review. The cookie is moist and is perfect with the mint filling. I was afraid there was not enough icing, but it was the perfect ratio. I wanted to test them before St Patrick's Day. I thought I would freeze them, but they were gone in short order. These are a keeper."

"These inflated a lot and the shape got distorted. Need to hardly press any dough out of the cookie press to assure this doesn't happen. Tasted good and were festive looking."
