An island of sandwiches


My next baking plan includes a whole lot of sandwich cookies. I like baking along thematic lines, such as the stuffed cookies for anti-Valentine's Day. For what reason shall I offer sandwich cookies?

This will likely include lemon-poppyseed shortbread sandwiched with lemon buttercream, maple cookies sandwiched with maple buttercream, peanut butter cookies sandwiched with peanut butter buttercream. What more should there be? Sandwich cookies aren't nearly as mad as stuffed cookies. Things like giant Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies are crazy enough that they are one step away from lunacy like deep-fried Twinkies and things of that ilk. It doesn't stop me. But still.

Hamentaschen would be fun to make; I only ever made hamentaschen once with my friend Naomi. I did not keep the recipe, which I quite liked compared to other recipes I have seen.
