Sandwich Cookies {with marshmallow cream filling}

Homemade Sandwich Cookies                        {with marshmallow cream filling}

Everyone in my family is a lover of all things cookie. ‘No cookie turned away’ is our motto.

With our last name being Monster, I guess that makes us all ‘Cookie Monsters’?!

If I had to choose a favourite cookie though, these sandwich cookies would be the winner.

There’s just something so delicious about a crunchy cookie with a sweet marshmallow filling.

Besides how delicious these sandwich cookies are, another great thing is how easy they are to make. In less than an hour, you can have these yummy treats ready to go. They keep about 6 weeks in a sealed container. They can be stored in a cool cupboard, just as long as they are kept out of direct sunlight to avoid the marshmallow cream melting.

I like to add some food colouring to the filling to make them festive based on the month. These particular cookies are for Easter. But you could do

coordinating clours for an event, red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween … you are only limited by your imagination.

Here’s how to make these delectable cookies:

Ingredients:

Cookies:

  • 1 cup of margarine
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 3/4 cups of flour

Marshmallow Cream:

  • 2 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 8tsp of light corn syrup
  • food colouring {optional}

 How To Make Them:

Cookies:

Cream your butter and sugar together. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Set aside.

 

In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Slowly add that to the margarine and sugar mixture.

 

Combine until the mixture makes a dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough so it’s about a quarter-inch thick.

 

Use a cookie cutter to cut out an even number of shapes. As you can see there is extra dough around the edges. Roll out the extra dough and cut it with the same cookie cutter to use it all up.

 

Place all cookies on a light coloured baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes (or until the cookies are golden brown). Cool on the sheet for a couple minutes, then finish cooling them on a cooling rack. Bake one sheet at a time to ensure even baking.

Marshmallow Cream: 

While to cookies are baking, put 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows, 2tsp of light corn syrup, and about 4 drops of food colouring [optional] in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 15 seconds and stir. This will be enough filling for about 4 cookies.

Place about a teaspoon of marshmallow cream in the centre of one cookie. Spread it out a little bit so that it almost touches the edges. If your cream gets too hard to work with, pop it back into the microwave for about 5 seconds. Its easier to work with if it’s slightly warm.

 

Add the top and slightly press so the filling goes to the edges. Place on a rack for about 5 minutes to set.

That’s it. They are done and ready to enjoy.

    That is so cute. I had to check to see if you were serious that your last name was Monster. The Cookie Monster family, I love it. My last name isn’t Monster but it may as well be. I have never met a cookie i didn’t like and these are no exception.

    Wow, I thought you made the biscuits from the pre-made ones. This is pretty cool to make one from start. My bf loves marshmallow, have you tried using natural colouring instead of artificial food colourings?

    I like that just by changing the food dye colour you can make them festive for any holiday. And my kids love marshmallows, I’m sure these would be a hit!
