Happy Holidays!! It’s been a while since I’ve been able to bake something, so I decided it was time to get back into it with these Sandwich cookies! Actually, this is my second time making these, the first time was during study break where I decided to be a productive procrastinator. Unfortunately, I wasn’t happy with the way they turned out so here is my much better, second attempt! They’re still not perfect, but they’ll do. My decorating attempts started out promising but as you can see, a slip of the hand here and there rendered them looking slightly disheveled. Let’s just pretend I was after the “homely / rustic” effect the whole time…The centre consists of raspberry marshmallow and a hazelnut chocolate fudge centre. I decided to be cheap and use raspberry flavoured essence in my first attempt which was a terrible idea! The freeze dried raspberries that the recipe calls for counterbalances all the sugar in the marshmallow because they’re quite tart.Of course, I had to give some to my friends :) You can pick up these really cute gift bags from $3 Japan on Queen Street and they’re so useful for packaging all kinds of edible treats. The original recipe is from Melie’s Kitchen, the cookies are really straightforward and quite easy to whip up. I’m tempted to try out some of her other recipes next time, if I can hunt down some of those ingredients that is.
