Have you ever had a discussion and all of a sudden you wonder how you got to whatever it is you are talking about, then you go back and trace your steps and are in awe of the evolution of your conversation? That’s where I’m at right now, just with food. The other day I went to Wally’s Wine And Spirits to pick up some Pliny the Elder (best.beer.ever). As I walked out to the parking lot I spied The Cheese Box, a tiny separate building (box) where they sell gourmet cheeses and sandwiches and other goodies. I just could not leave without ordering a Wally’s Hero on Ciabatta (best.sandwich.ever), I need to make a copycat version and post it stat. Anyway, there was a bit of a wait, but I didn’t mind because there are so many interesting and gourmet items to check out, plus I got used to the stinky cheese smell. As I was perusing the shelves I stopped at a package of cookies, not just any cookies, vanilla sandwich cookies by platine. I’ve seen them before, but was never willing to shell out the dough for a bag of 6 cookies. This day was different, I could not resist and decided to treat myself and ate a cookie while my sandwich was made. Oh Em Gee. Forget the best beer ever, forget the best sandwich ever, this cookie is beyond description. Now I’m craving sandwich cookies (there might be drool in the corner of my mouth), but it’s late and the cookies on my mind are sold in a shop that is currently closed, not to mention they will make my pocketbook wince. Which leads me to this point of finding a replacement recipe that is worthy of the original. So here we are with several decadent sandwich cookies to make at home to go with that beer I bought so long ago.
