If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for new delicious treats to satisfy your sweet cravings. Today, I’ve been thinking about sandwich cookies and I have a list of mouthwatering recipes that are sure to become instant favorites in your kitchen!

Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with all of the details, but there is one interesting tale in the world of sandwich cookies…

The most iconic sandwich cookie, Oreo, debuted in the United States in 1912 but it wasn’t the first sandwich cookie in the US. Yep, the Hydrox cookie predates the Oreo by four years.

However, despite having a 4 year lead, they struggled to market the treats and Oreo stole the hearts (and stomachs) of American snackers. The Hydrox was discontinued in 1999 and then reintroduced in 2015. This is why many people believe that Hydrox is a knockoff of Oreo instead of the other way around!

Personally, I’m glad that Oreo has done so well because they have come up with some of the most amazing sandwich cookie combinations like Blueberry Pie, Pumpkin Spice, and even Fruity Crisp.

When it comes to making your own sandwich cookies, the possibilities are endless. You can use all sorts of cookies, from soft and chewy to crisp and crunchy. Some popular choices include chocolate chip, oatmeal, sugar cookies, and even shortbread.

As for fillings, well, that’s where the fun really begins! You can go classic with buttercream or cream cheese frosting, or get creative with jams, nut butters, or even marshmallow fluff. The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your perfect sandwich cookie masterpiece!

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to roll up your sleeves, preheat that oven, and get baking. Who knows, maybe you’ll come up with a recipe that knocks Oreo off the top of the sandwich cookie list! Scroll down for some inspiration…
