Posted on Posted in Chocolate, Cookies

This recipe for Chocolate Crème Sandwiches is the first one I’m making out of Dorie Greenspan’s newest cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies with the Tuesdays with Dorie bake-along group. To me, this is like a grown-up’s version of an Oreo cookie. The cookie itself isn’t sweet, but the filling more than makes up for that!

The cookie dough recipe is straight-forward and very easy to make; it’s a roll and cut-out type of cookie dough. I feel like my rolling skills should improve by the time we finish baking through this book! Dorie mentions that you should choose your cocoa carefully. I am curious to see what difference Valrhona cocoa would make compared to the brand I used.p1150257

Steps 1 & 2: Mix the butter, sugar, and salt together, then add egg whites.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients all at once.p1150261

I only mixed until the dough started clumping together.

Step 4: Gather the dough into a ball, divide the ball in half, roll the two balls into flat discs and refrigerated them overnight.

My cookie dough was nice and firm the next morning. It was the perfect time to cut out my cookies!p1150320

The cookies hardly changed their shapes after they were baked in the oven. I noticed that the dough that was rolled out twice wasn’t as smooth as the dough that was only rolled out once. The differences weren’t that noticeable, though. I let all of my cookies cool while I started on the filling.

The filling was extremely easy to make and came together in five minutes.p1150347

All of the ingredients were whipped together in my mixer until the filling was the consistency of cream cheese.p1150348

Like filling macarons, I decided to pair up my cookies based on thickness.p1150353

I plopped some filling onto the bottom cookie, and then sandwiched it with the top cookie. I learned it’s not easy making cookie sandwiches look neat.p1150355

These Chocolate Crème Sandwiches need to be refrigerated; if the filling isn’t firm, it’ll ooze out when you bite into them.

When I took this photo, I was thinking that these would make pretty good cookies for ice cream sandwiches.

If I were to make this recipe again, I would add a little more sugar into the cookies. The cocoa powder I used was a little bitter; I relied on the sweetness of the filling to counter the bitterness of the cocoa.

Overall, these Chocolate Crème Sandwiches were pretty good. I really enjoyed the texture, and they were also pretty fun to make!p1150377

  1. Oh, my word, each and every photo is absolutely gorgeous. You win. Seriously read the whole post and seriously looked at each photo 5 times. Yes, yes, the cookies look fantastic, but oh, wow, can you put a post together. My posts are always like “Okay, I did it, here’s the proof” for my various groups through the years. Yours are like a work of art! 🙂

  2. I agree with Katye – the photos are gorgeous! And you made your cookies look neat and professional – I had a bit of a hard time with that when I was filling them. I loved these cookies!

    1. Thanks Teresa! Filling them was pretty tricky. Towards the end, I finally got a system down: I scooped about 1 tsp of creme on the bottom cookie and bounced the back of a spoon up and down on the cream until it spread evenly, then swooped the top of the creme to flatten it a little! It sounds weird, but it works!
