I made these cookies today in class as part of an assignment!! The cookies themselves were crisp with a fine caramelized taste on top. The spices were rationed out perfectly to create a spicy, sweet, gingery flavor. Everyone in the class brought home their final product and I decided to make sandwiches out of them. I used this basic cream cheese frosting and mixed in cinnamon to create a cinnamon cream cheese filling. Using a plastic pastry bag with a small cut hole, I piped some filling in the middle of one half of the cookies and created very delicious sandwiches by gently pressing the unfrosted cookies on top. Mmm Mmm good.
Unfortunately I can't post the recipes for what we make at culinary school so I hope you enjoy the pictures!
