Chewy, flavorful, delightfully creamy center…these molasses cookie sandwiches are the cookie to make this fall season.
This recipe is probably the yummiest thing I’ve made recently. Mitch declared them as his favorite type of sandwich-y desserts. As in, he likes these better than whoopie pies. Even the pumpkin kind. And that’s saying something because I just made some pumpkin whoopie pies for Bryce’s birthday treat and they were good. These, according to Mitch, are even better. They’re the perfect balance of chewy and creamy…they’re just a delicious little treat. And I think you should make them pronto!
There are quite a few Golden Barrel ingredients in here, so definitely check out our online store for the ingredients. (plus if you sign up for our monthly email newsletter, you’ll receive 10% off your first order!) I used both butter as well as coconut oil in these cookies and they turned out nice and plump. A lot of times when using just butter, cookies tend to flatten out. So this way, I got the flavor of the butter but the cookies’ height from coconut oil. Win/win.
There’s dark brown sugar and Supreme Baking Molasses in the batter for that distinct molasses cookie flavor. Yum-o. Finished off with a dusting of organic cane sugar for that coarse texture, these cookies not only taste great but they look pretty dang amazing too if you ask me. You may certainly eat them as a cookie, without the filling but…why?
For the middle filling, I used a cream cheese/butter icing recipe. It’s the perfect compliment to the flavorful cookies.
I’m telling you guys, please do yourself and your friends/family a favor and make these here cookie sandwiches. Speaking of friends and family…how great would these Chewy Molasses Cookie Sandwiches with Cream Cheese Filling be as an addition to your Thanksgiving Day dessert table?? Yes. Do it!
