How to Make Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together.
  • 2In another bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until combined.
  • 3Add the cocoa powder slowly to the butter mixture. Then slowly add the flour mixture until a dough forms.
  • 4Roll dough into a log and wrap in plastic. Place dough in refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.
  • 5Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • 6Roll out cookie dough to 1/4-inch thickness. To make football shapes, use the largest Wilton Oval Fondant cutter and cut as many shapes as possible.
  • 7Bake for 7-8 minutes depending on thickness and shape or until the edges are firm. Cool on pan for a few minutes then move to a wire cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • 8For the Caramel Sauce:
  • 9In a small saucepan, put the water and sugar over medium-low heat. Measure cream and vanilla to have to ready to use when needed.
  • 10Continuously stir the sugar/water mixture until it turns golden. Once it turns golden, remove it from the heat so that it won't scorch.
  • 11Slowly add the cream and vanilla to the melted sugar. It will bubble and splatter, so mix slowly and carefully. Once fully mixed, set aside to cool completely.
  • 12For the Salted Caramel Buttercream:
  • 13Beat the butter and sugar together until it is creamy.
  • 14Add vanilla and sea salt and mix until incorporated.
  • 15Add about 1/2 of the caramel sauce to the buttercream and throughly mix.
  • 16To assemble the cookies, add the desired amount of buttercream to one side of a cookie and top with another cookie. Add football details with melted white chocolate.
