Crunchy Cookie Sandwiches with Cream Cheese Chocolate Filling

Monday, August 3, 2009

Hey, AnnaLisa here. While my sister, Lara, is taking a little vacation from the blog, I thought I'd take this opportunity to type up one of the recipes that I made a while back. These cookies came from the Taste of Home book called, "Grandma's Favorites" which is a title I can relate to well. ;) I really like how unique these cookies are with their cornflake-y, crunchy cookie sandwich combined with the sweet creamy filling. My nieces and nephews really liked them too.

COOKIES:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1/2 cup flaked coconut

FILLING:
1 package (8-oz) cream cheese
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups (12-oz.) semisweet chocolate chips, melted

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Add oats, cornflakes, and coconut.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2-inches apart on greased baking sheets. Flatten with a glass dipped lightly in flour. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

For filling, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the chocolate; mix well. Spread about 1 tablespoon on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie. Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Enjoy!

The cream cheese filling sounds delicious with the oatmeal cookie.
