The more I try to come up with fancy Christmas cookies the more I fall back into the most classical ones. HAHA
No, seriously there is just no way you cannot make Chocolate Chip Cookies for Christmas.
And because we are feeling festive we are going the extra mile and doing The best vegan Chocolate chip cookie Sandwiches.
Are you with me?
It is like the BEST COOKIE THINGY YOU CAN DO.
Although it might no be very festive it totally makes up for it with the amazing taste!
For the filling, I found a pretty convenient way. Once I whipped up the coconut milk (recipe here) I added a little vanilla and filled it into this kind of ring (it is used to make starters or whatever ;)) and then freeze it for 20 minutes. Feel free to go crazy and add cacao powder to make choco coco loco filling.
The ring looks like this:
Once it is half frozen I can slice little discs that fit between the cookies. When you click on the ring you see the german amazon page with details. I have NO IDEA how this thing is called in Englisch! So dear Americans and Canadians please tell me and I will add an American amazon link 🙂
