Instructions for the Homemade Giant Sandwich Cookie:
…for the shortcrust pastry:
Put all ingredients for the cookie dough in a mixing bowl and knead with your hands for about 4 – 5 minutes until smooth. Then halve the dough, wrap both parts into cling film and put in the fridge for about 1 hour.
After about 1 hour, get the dough out of the fridge, in succession wrap each half of dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out about 1 centimeter thick with a rolling pin. Cut out the dough with the help of a cake ring (20cm diameter) circularly, remove the excess dough and put aside.
For the decorations, first make small notches with a knife back on the edge of the two circles of dough at a distance of about ½ centimeter. Next, draw the logo or pattern on the cookies with the help of a toothpick, chopstick & knife, for that it is best to watch my video below.
Then bake the cookies one after the other in a preheated oven at 160°C (top/bottom heat) for approx. 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown. Afterwards take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool completely on a cooling rack.
…for chocolate filling:
Put 400 grams of whole milk chocolate, 100 grams of dark chocolate & 150 milliliters of cream in a small saucepan & melt over low heat with a constant stir, then pull the saucepan from heat & allow the chocolate mixture to cool slightly.
Next, place one of the two cookies on a kitchen board, arrange a cake ring with a diameter of 18cm on it & additionally put a strip of baking paper into the cake ring. Pour in the melted chocolate filling & allow to harden for about 1 hour at room temperature.
Finally remove the cake ring and the baking paper & carefully press the second cookies onto the chocolate. Allow the done sandwich cookie to harden completely and serve. Have fun baking!
