Christmas Sandwich Cremes

These melt-in-your-mouth sandwich cookies have a scrumptious filling. I helped my sister make these in high school when she needed a project in her home economics class. My guess is that these were some of the best Christmas cookies in her class. She got an A+! —Janice Poechman, Walkerton, Ontario

Prick with a fork several times. Bake 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks.
