So I was going to an engagement party and wanted to bring something more special than a regular cookie, but not a cake.
Enter: Red wine cookies. But I had made those before and, though amazing, I wanted to kick them up a notch. So…how about some cream cheese frosting, sandwich it between two cookies. and…..
These little beauties were born.
I brought them to the party and they were a huge hit!
Want one? Let’s do it.
First, make one recipe of my dark chocolate Cabernet cookies.
Then, a batch of my cream cheese frosting.
Put the frosting into a pipping bag (like it says in the recipe). Then, take one cookie, pipe on a generous dollop of frosting. Smoosh another cookie on top. and boom!
They practically melt in your mouth.
Warning: it’s hard to eat just one! Best to share with friends 🙂
I also made red wine brownies while I was in the baking-with-wine groove. Gave those as gifts.
What makes you happier than red wine, chocolate, and cheese, amiright?!
