Gluten free sandwich cookies have always been one of my favorite cookies. How is it possible I have never made a sandwich cookie?
I have made whoopie pies, and things more cake-like, but never a real filled cookie that resembles an oreo. I buy those chalky gluten free oreo substitutes at Trader Joe's, but unless I use them smooshed as a crust, I don't like them.
It was definitely time to change that when I found this green frosting on sale. It seemed a little early for green to be on sale with St. Patrick's Day coming, but I thought it would look pretty in these gluten free chocolate cookies.
My kids were pretty excited about this gluten free cookie recipe too. These cookies are not crispy like an oreo, they are a bit softer, more like a sugar cookie.
Both kids said they were delicious, and next time make them with Nutella inside :-). I want to make another batch of these gluten free pfeffernusse cookies next!

Sorry, it is hard not to taste when I am taking pictures :-).
These cookies are really easy to make. You will find that my cookie recipe resembles any gluten free sugar cookie recipe. Once I have the batter all mixed, I rolled it out really thin.
Add your dry ingredients to the bowl and whisk to blend.
I have tested three gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
In a smaller bowl, add your wet ingredients and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Lay out a piece of wax paper and put your chocolate cookie dough on top. Place a piece of wax paper on the dough and roll to 1/4 inch thickness.
Use a small cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. In hindsight, I shouldn't have used this cutter with the scalloped edges. It was a little harder to peel the shapes out once cut. You can use any shape cutter you like. Just make sure your dough is cold.
Bake the cookies on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-8 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove the cookies from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Allow cookies to completely cool before adding frosting to the middles.
