Grasshopper Lunar Cookies
A few weeks back, I began experimenting to recreate one of my husband's favorite childhood treats. He loves the classic Southern sandwich cookie known as the "Moon Pie." These cookies have a crisp, almost graham cracker like shortbread cookie layered with marshmallow cream and covered in chocolate. After much research and an afternoon int he kitchen, I had developed a pretty good recipe. This recipe is a modification of the original recipe. In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, I added the green food coloring to the marshmallow cream. The mint flavor makes the sandwich cookies reminiscent of another one of my husband's favorite childhood treats, the Andes mint. If you are willing to be patient and try something new, you will love these cookies.
