1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips


1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely ground hazelnuts
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Cook whipping cream in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat 5-6 minutes or until cream comes to a boil; remove from heat. Add chocolate chips; stir until chips are melted. Reserve 1/2 cup for glaze; set aside.

Place remaining filling in bowl; refrigerate, stirring occasionally, 1-2 hours or until filling reaches desired spreading consistency.

Heat oven to 375°F.

Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, coffee granules and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed.  Add flour, hazelnuts, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2-inch round, square or star-shaped cookie cutter.

Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto large ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges just start to brown. (Do not over bake.) Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Spread 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom-side of half of cookies; top with another cookie, bottom-side down.

Microwave reserved glaze 15-20 seconds or until softened. Drizzle glaze over sandwich cookies. Refrigerate until glaze is set.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

One word, addictive! These were a little time consuming to make, but; well worth it!! I made the filling as instructed, but; I filled one "sandwich" with nutella, just to try it. The nutella actually overwhelmed the flavor of the cookies and the chocolate was better. I didn't glaze the cookies, though. I, personally, don't like glazes because they tend to melt and make the cookies sticky. They were wonderful without it. I will make these again and again!!
I made these sandwich cookies to add to Christmas treat bags for my relatives. I would definitely say that these cookies are "sophisticated": coffee lovers will enjoy the hint of coffee in the cookies, but the hazelnuts are what may turn some people away from them. My husband enjoys both coffee and chocolate, but he wasn't crazy about these cookies. My husband said they cookies smelled better than they tasted. I like the finished product, but it was time-consuming, and I'm not sure how many people will like them.
I will be eating these cookies with coffee or with an evening cup of hot cocoa.
