One afternoon I was wandering through Shopper’s Drug Mart and saw a package of those chocolate buttons that Cadbury’s and others are making. And a lightbulb went off: what if I used them to make a sort of “reverse Oreo?”
So I made some sugar cookie dough. I got a recipe on line–there are dozens of them–and went to work.
It’s very easy.
- Make the dough and roll into a log a few centimetres in diameter–just larger than the chocolate buttons.
- Cool it in the freezer.
- When it’s cool, it’s easier to cut. Slice the log into coins–not too thick!
- make your cookie sandwiches. I found that it’s better with two chocolate buttons per cookie. Who doesn’t want more chocolate?
- Bake according to the recipe.
That’s it. Prep and baking time was around a half hour, not including the time it too to cool.
Next time I’m trying Caramilk Buttons.
