    My son would eat these every meal if I let him. I use orange extract instead of vanilla, but it's good both ways.

    These are really good and they're super easy to make. My only suggestion would be to fill the cookies sparingly with frosting or double the frosting recipe, depending on your preference.

    These are great! I added mini choc chips to the batter for some and to the filling for some and they are even better!
