My version of Milano cookies :)

I was craving Milano cookies and didn't want to spend the $4 bucks they now cost, so I decided to make them.

I had never made them before but they came out pretty good. Next time I will use molds for the cookie shapes though.


Cookie part
1 1/4 cup salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs sugar
3 cups flour

1 1/2 tbs softened salted butter
1 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp pur mint extract
1 long squirt of Hershey's syrup (yup that is how I measure it lol)

Directions for cookies
Mix brown sugar, vanilla extract and sugar with butter til smooth
Slowly add the flour and mix til smooth.

Next drop onto parchment paper and flatten or shape into an oval. I used a really small spatula.
Bake at 325 for 15-18mins, til brown, then set aside and let COOL.

Directions for filling
Melt chocolate filling ingredients in a double boiler pot on LOW heat. Cook til melted together, stir constantly and don't burn the chocolate!

Assembling the cookies
On the flat side of the cookie spread enough chocolate then top with another cookie, flat side down. Continue til cookies and chocolate are gone!

Now you have Mint Milano style cookies! I think i'm going to dip them in chocolate and roll in walnuts next!
