How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

How to Make the Filling

Tips for Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Start with high-quality ingredients. Use real butter, good-quality chocolate chips, and pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  2. Ensure that your butter is properly softened before creaming it with sugar. Softened butter will blend better with the sugar, resulting in a smoother texture and better incorporation of other ingredients.
  3. Combine both granulated sugar and brown sugar in your recipe. The brown sugar adds moisture, flavor, and a hint of caramel undertones to the cookies.
  4. After mixing the dough, refrigerate it for at least 1-2 hours or overnight. Chilling the dough helps prevent excessive spreading during baking, resulting in thicker and chewier cookies.
  5. Be sure the cookies are cooled before adding frosting.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Make mini cookie sandwiches! Just make your cookie dough balls half the size and you will end up with little bite sized sandwiches.
  • Add a bit of extra fun by rolling the edges of the cookie sandwiches with fun toppings such as sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or chopped nuts!
  • Beat the heat during the summer and switch out the vanilla butter cream with vanilla ice cream for an easy ice cream sandwich!
  • Amp up the chocolate and sub in some cocoa powder and make chocolate buttercream. Or for cookie dough fans, sub the buttercream for your favorite edible cookie dough!

FAQs for Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

  • Can I freeze the cookies? The baked cookies – without the frosting – will definitely freeze well. Place them in an airtight container, like a freezer bag, and they should last a couple of months. You can also freeze the cookie dough balls prior to baking if you only need a few cookies at a time.
  • How do I store the buttercream? You can make the frosting in advance and store it in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last about two weeks, but is freshest if used with in the first few days, up to about a week.
