Cookie Sandwich with Speculoos Spread

Another treat that you will enjoy, Cookie Sandwich with Speculoos spread. Follow recipe below.


·         For the cookies:
2 3/4 cup AP flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
·         Filling:
3 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Speculoos spread
1 cup confectioner sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp milk

·         Preheat oven to 350.  Line a baking sheet with either parchment paper.
·         Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.  In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy in consistency for about 3-5 minutes.  Mix in eggs one at a time, beating for one minute after each addition and scraping down the sides as needed.  Reduce speed to low and gradually mix in the flour until just combined.
·         Stir together cinnamon and 2 tbsp sugar in a small bowl.  Shape the dough into little balls (about a heaping tsp or a small cookie scoop’s worth).  Roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden.  Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack.  Let cool completely before filling.

To make the filling:

·         Combine the butter,  Speculoos spread, confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Beat on medium speed until smooth.  Add the milk and beat until fluffy.
·         To assemble the sandwiches, find two cookies that are similar in size.  Use a knife to spread about a tbsp of filling on the inside of one cookie.  Sandwich the cookies together.
·         Makes 24 cookie sandwich
