Chocolate Orange Sandwich Cookies with Ginger Cheesecake Filling
- The combo of chocolate and orange is a classic and one of my favorites. I wanted to create a sandwich cookie with both of those flavors and thought ginger would be a nice complement since it pairs so well with orange. And how can you go wrong with a cheesecake filling!

How to Make Chocolate Orange Sandwich Cookies with Ginger

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • 2In a medium bowl, place the cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter, mix to fully combine. Add in the powdered sugar, a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add in the ginger and 1/4 teaspoon salt, mix to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Add in the cocoa powder, orange zest and orange juice, mix to fully combine.
