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

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In 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.
  3. Cream remaining 1 cup butter in a large bowl; add in the brown sugar, baking powder and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, mix to fully combine. Add in the egg and vanilla extract, mix to fully combine. Add in the flour, a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add in the cocoa powder, orange zest and orange juice, mix to fully combine.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass into granulated sugar and flatten each ball to about 1/4-inch thickness.
  5. Place in preheated oven and bake for 18 minutes until edges of cookies are firm. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Lay half of the cooled cookies onto work surface, flat side up. Spread approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons of reserved ginger cheesecake mixture onto cookies, top each with a second cookie, flat side down, forming a sandwich cookie.
