LOOKING for: Vanilla wafer cookie for a sandwich cookie

jennAugust 25, 2006

I'd like to try making a light vanilla cookie and put two together to make a sandwich cookie, the inside of which will be Nutella. :-)

Does anyone have a nice vanilla cookie recipe? One idea I have is to make a chocolate chip cookie recipe but without the chocolate chips. Or, maybe a shortbread cookie.... I have a good one that holds its shape from the Silver Palate Cookbook.

I think what would work would be this recipe but instead of making an indentation, just press flat & bake, then make sandwich cookies from them:
1 cup butter
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup flour

3 oz cream cheese
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla

For cookies: Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter & sugar. Add flour & cornstrch; mix well. Cover & chill thoroughly. Form into 1" balls & place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make an indentation with your thumb in the middle of each ball. Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet & cool.
To make frosting, cream sugar & cream cheese. Add vanilla. Place a spoonful of frosting in indentation of each cookie.~~Thymes Remembered

Those sound delicious just as they are! Thanks Ginger - I bet they would work also for sandwich cookies.
