Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies, an Italian take on a sandwich cookie. Choose between a creamy Nutella or Peanut Butter Filling. So yummy!
As any Italian family knows, a lot of discussions involve food. Needless to say it is a highly discussed subject in our house. A while ago the food topic was “What makes a good, no really good, Cookie“?
My youngest daughter, what a surprise, replied Nutella, my eldest chocolate chips. The Italian it didn’t matter as long as it wasn’t too sweet. Myself, I love a really good sandwich cookie.
In Italy there aren’t many sandwich cookies available, just the normal vanilla sandwich cookie. It’s pretty good but not amazing and kind of boring. So we decided to put together all the things we love and make some of our own.
So we eventually came up with these delicious and so easy Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies. We even turned some of them into Double Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies. We love chocolate.
I made a stay-in-place and don’t spread chocolate chip cookie dough. I halved the dough and to half I added some cocoa and made double chocolate chip dough.
I rolled the dough into small balls and flattened them out with a shot glass (actually in Italy it is one of my espresso cups, but looks like a shot glass), and then baked them.
After they cooled, we decided to fill some of them with some Nutella and for others I made a really good peanut butter filling, (which one day needs to be stuffed into something else)! My husband decided the cookies were perfect on their own, no sandwich cookies for him, too sweet! Enjoy!
