Insanely Chocolaty Chewable Sandwich Cookies


A Very Happy Valentines Day to all our readers. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. lol..lol..Well I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. Whatever the history of Valentine's Day, each February 14 has become a highly commercialized holiday in North America and beyond, that's intended to celebrate love and relationships..OK AGREE..BUT why look for special days..if love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight is in  the recognition,why bind in special days, celebrate it always,  thats my thought, anyways......I made these pecan mudslide (original recipe), which demanded for eggs, all purpose flour & pecans, which is replaced here by oats-flour, wheat flour, all purpose & almonds, of course its eggless by replacing egg with apple sauce, rest the taste remains similar. The perfect adjective for these heavenly bites..Insanely Chocolaty Chewable Sandwich Cookies for all chocolate lovers. Here's how I made them. For now enjoy this visual treat!!!

chocolaty sandwich cookies


Ingredients:
1 C Oats flour
1/2 C Wheat flour
1/2 C All purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 C bittersweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp espresso powder/Instant coffee 
3/4 C Sugar (add more if you like more sweet), OR replace with xyliTol
1/4 C unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 C Canola Oil
1- 4oz Apple Sauce
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract.
2/3 C chopped toasted almonds
chocolate cookies

Method:
1. Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Melt 1/2 C of chocolate using the double-boiler method or in the microwave. While still hot, stir in espresso powder. Set aside to cool.
4. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy. 
5. Slowly add whisked dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the melted chocolate, and apple sauce.
6. Finally stir in the reserved chocolate chips and toasted almonds
7. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread it into an even-ish layer with a spatula
8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
9. Place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, or until firm enough to handle without it sticking to your fingers.
10. Remove the dough from the fridge and slide the parchment paper and dough onto a cutting board. Using a large, sharp knife, cut the dough into equal pieces.
11. Give each piece a somewhat rounded shape with the palms of your hands and place on the prepared baking sheets.
12. Insert into the oven and bake for 12(chewy)-15(crispy)minutes. Or until the surface is just set, but still plenty soft when gently pressed in the middle.
13. Let the cookies settle on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.

Sandwich filling:
1/2 C White chocolate chips.
Orange Extract/essence (optional)

Method:
Microwave or double boil to melt white chocolate. After melting at this point of time add 2 drops of orange essence. Once the cookies are cold enough, apply melted white chocolate with a help of a butter knife,on one layer and sandwich it with other. Put it right in the fridge or set aside, to harden chocolate filling. Enjoy!!
