maple walnut sandwich cookies

Good morning! If you’re a maple walnut ice cream fan, you need these cookies in your life. These maple walnut sandwich cookies earned me the title “sandwich cookie queen” among my grad school girlfriends this weekend. If you’re thinking, “That’s random…”, check out my carrot cake sandwich cookies and you’ll understand why.

I whipped these up for our friend Kort’s birthday which we celebrated during last weekend’s mini-reunion. I made just a few tweaks to the original sandwich cookie recipe to get the maple walnut flavor that I love so much.
Don’t worry. They’re still made with love and yogurt. A little plain low-fat yogurt in the cookie batter and 0% Greek yogurt in the frosting replaces quite a bit of butter, without sacrificing flavor. I throw in the love as an added bonus.
Just make sure you have maple extract on hand for the frosting. You’ll regret it if you don’t.

The oats serve 2 purposes:

  1. It’s a tasty way to add little extra whole grain in our diet.
  2. I consider oats a breakfast food… I bet you can guess where I’m going with this.
