Stuffed is a book containing 65 mix & match recipes for sandwich cookies! Whoopie pies, macarons, ice cream sandwiches and more! The book breaks down these delicious sandwiches into 6 categories: 1. Oldies but Goodies, 2. For the Love of Chocolate, 3. The Cool Cookies, 4. Tart & Tangy, 5. Cookies with a Kick, 6. Cocktail Cookies and then the book is rounded out with chapter 7 – the fillings!
In addition to the recipes, there’s a lot of tips and tricks to make sure your kitchen and pantry are ready to go to make whatever type of cookie sandwich your heart desires. What supplies you will need for baking, what ingredients to have on hand and tips on how to know your kitchen! Don’t want to be burning anything because you’re not familiar with your oven!
One tip for reading this book – make sure you’ve eaten before you start! I had just finished lunch but still would like to eat every single one of these cookies in the Oldies but Goodies section. (My favorite pick is probably the Funfetti Cookies with Cake Batter Buttercream though! Homemade milanos are probably a close second)
All the cookies are photographed as well and I am sure that any attempt I make for any of these will not come out looking anywhere near as gorgeous… but if it tastes good, I guess we can call that a win!
Other favorites throughout the book include: Hot Fudge Sundae Macarons, Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches and Sugar Cookie Confetti Ice Cream Sandwiches!
I was also surprised to see some savory options in the mix! Definitely a lot of options to choose from!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
