ISO Sweet or savory sandwich cookie ideas

maplesugar | Jul 14, 200808:52 PM     15

Tonight I made a batch of chocolate sandwich cookies with a cream-cheese frosting for a filling. My kids were over the moon since oreos aren't something we stock in the pantry and these cookies were a pretty good knockoff(didn't really taste the cream cheese in the filling) but to me - and maybe anyone over say 20, they were pretty sweet. Anyone have other filling ideas?

Oh and I was also thinking I could do a reverse oreo next time with the ganache and a vanilla cookie... The cookies are perfect for sandwiching and the dough is forgiving in terms of re-rolling scraps but I'm not sure how to subtract the cocoa from the recipe to turn them into a blondie..ideas?

We're travelling soon (three kids 6, 3&1/2 and 2) and I'd love other sweet or savory sandwich cookie/cracker ideas for road snacks - like Ritz Bits for instance but without the chemical soup.

Any ideas or recipes you'd care to share would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

and thanks for reading this far...I'm all over the place tonight(sugar high heh)...apparently I sampled a few too many of the cookies '-)
