Remember that one time when Milano cookies were like, the best things ever? Yeah, me too.
Remember that one time we made Homemade Milano Cookies
and they were EVEN BETTER? Aw yeah, me too!
Forget what you think about the store-bought cookie, because one bite of these homemade chocolate-filled sandwich cookies and you’re going to wish you’d known about this recipe a lot sooner. But no worries! Today is The Day. The Day to Change All Days. The day when you make your own Milano cookies right in your kitchen. And then devour them all in a single sitting.
So, batter up:
First, combine the cookie ingredients, including butter, powdered sugar, egg whites, vanilla and flour. Sweet and simple. Also, DELICIOUS.
Pipe little sections of the batter onto a silicone mat or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. I made cookies with both linings, and found the silicone mats do a MUCH better job of rendering the perfect Milano cookie shape. But, they both get the job done and that’s what really matters.
Bake the cookies until the edges are lightly browned.
Then, make the chocolate filling: Hello, heavy cream, semisweet chocolate and orange zest. Welcome to my life.
Now welcome to the center of these cookies.
And now, welcome to my mouth.
Seriously, there ain’t no time like the present to make these homemade cookies in your kitchen. With a little bit of patience (and, mayhaps, a lot of salivating), you’ll be glad you did.Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
