If you’re not a fan of raspberry preserves, you can substitute any other flavor you like. Strawberry, apricot, or even Nutella would work well in this recipe. You can also switch up the type of chocolate you use for dipping, such as milk or dark chocolate.
If you don’t have unsalted butter, you can use salted butter in its place, just omit the salt in the recipe. You can also use margarine or shortening if you prefer. If you’re looking for a healthier option, you can substitute half the flour with whole wheat flour, or use a sugar substitute instead of sugar.
These cookie sandwiches can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
- Make sure your butter is softened before you begin mixing the dough.
- Don’t overmix the dough or your cookies will be tough.
- Use a high-quality raspberry preserve for the best flavor.
- Allow the cookies to cool completely before spreading the raspberry preserves, or they will melt and create a mess.
- When melting the white chocolate, be sure to stir it frequently to prevent burning.
This recipe makes about 10 cookie sandwiches, but you can easily double or triple the recipe to make more.
