Makes approximately 1 ½ dozen cookies.

Total time, including cooling, is about 3 ½ hours.

Note: These cookies are NOT gluten free, vegan, dairy free, etc. I have never experimented with different variations of these cookies, so I do not know how they would turn out, but you are more than welcome to try!

Step 1: Collect Ingredients and Equipment.

<p>You could replace the frosting with ice cream</p>
<p>It might be tasty to add peppermint flavoring to the filling. </p><p>This is a nifty looking recipe. Please make more!</p>
I like the cookies themselves without the filling &amp; was hoping to find a recipe made from scratch. Having a cake flour base, wouldn't these be more chewy than crunchy? Looks closer to a Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme than an Oreo. Thanks for sharing, they do look good.
<p>Those look delicious :)</p>
