Two Tone Cookie Crinkles

This is the cookie, we are baking for Cookie Carnival.  Each month, Tammy selects a cookie, we all choose to bake with her. 

I learned a lot from making this cookie, the two tone cookie crinkles.  I made my mistakes, along the way and hope I learned from them.

When I cut the shaped cookies, I was not exacting about the size and shape and as a result, my cookies are not consistent.   The result was that they did not line up correctly.  Regardless of this, they are visually good enough and taste-wise, also good enough.

Summing up the cookie, it is a double cookie with a ganache filling.  With a vanilla and chocolate component, you know it is good.

I have no idea why these are called crinkles.

I don't like making big cookies and usually choose a smaller version but being the first time, I made this, I stuck to the directions.  Big cookies are still not my faves but this one came out as a good to eat, attractive cookie.

  1. Oh, these are beautiful. I wonder if they would be too hard for my eleven-year-old girls to make. They love baking and they are actually a lot better at making pretty things than I am. I just don't have the patience.... Great job!

  2. I, too, find it hard to get cookies that line up together whenever I try to make sandwich cookies. I like how the chocolate looks like it's bubbling out the middle. Yum!

  4. They look beautiful. I like the shape of the cookie cutter you chose. These are so delicious, but I too cannot figure out why they are called crinkles!
