Mint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Why This Recipe Works
Chocolate icebox cookies were our favorites for use in our chocolate sandwich cookies recipe—they have a texture that is tender yet sturdy and a deep, chocolaty flavor. Additionally, because they are sliced from a log of dough, the cookies in a single batch bake up with a uniform shape and size so that the cookies match up and make attractive sandwiches. For the mint chocolate filling for our chocolate sandwich cookies recipe, we liked a simple mixture of cream, chocolate, and mint extract—it had a perfect texture for spooning onto the cookies and was firm enough that it didn’t ooze when a cookie was bitten into.
