Vanilla Fudge Sandwich Cookies – a kid favorite at our house! Buttery delicious, vanilla wafer cookies sandwiched together with a thick chocolate frosting.
What I really like about these simple cookies, is that, although the two flavors are quite different, you can still taste them quite separately when you first bit into them. The aromatic vanilla is definitely not overpowered by the chocolate fudge; just be sure to use real butter and a good quality vanilla extract (not artificial vanilla flavoring).
