      I made these several weeks back and they were so well received that I have made them several times since. The only change I made was the icing. I used 3 parts powdered sugar to 1 part shortening, added a touch of vanilla & enough evaporated milk/milk to made the right consistency to sandwich 2 cookies together. I don't bother to sift the sugar but beat the mixture well. I sandwiched the cookies, like an Oreo, with a good amount of the icing in the middle. I wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Letting them sit overnight adds to the flavor & texture of the treat. They are so good that I can't keep up with the demand.
