2 cups Honeyville Hazelnut Flour
1 cup Honeyville Fine Rice Flour
4 Tbsp Water
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
1/2 cup Honeyville Baker's Cocoa Powder
3 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Butter, softened
5 Tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Powdered Sugar
Yields: 6 sandwich cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine hazelnut flour, rice flour, eggs, water, butter, and coconut sugar together, and mix until a thick but sticky cookie dough forms.
On your USA Pan Cookie Pan, lined with parchment paper, place spoonfuls of dough, then press down to form a cookie shape.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until cookies are soft, yet firm. Remove and allow to cool while you make your frosting.
In a large bowl, combine baker's cocoa, cream cheese, butter, milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar, and mix together with an electric hand mixer until a soft frosting forms.
Once cookies are cooled, frost the bottom of one cookie and place the bottom of the other cookie on top, forming a cookie sandwich. Place in refrigerator and allow to set up for 15 minutes before serving.
These cookies a light, fluffy, delicious, and packed full of so much flavor and taste. There's the perfect amount of hazelnut flavor baked in to every cookie, with a delicious, creamy chocolate taste that comes through in the frosting. Each flavor is not too much, giving this the perfect combination of both, without one overpowering the other. Serve this up for the perfect snack, or store in the refrigerator in a Tupperware container for those late-night cravings.
