Salt and Pepper Sandwich Cookies: BAKED Sunday Mornings

These cookies are BAKED's version of oreos.  They have white pepper and fluer de sel hence the name salt and pepper cookies.  The pepper surprised me.  I thought it would be a much more obvious flavor note in the cookies, but it's just a little spice that kicks in towards the end of a bite.  It almost makes you think of nutmeg, since the white pepper is a much more milder in terms of heat/spiciness.  It rounds the cookie out nicely though.  The filing is very comparable to the oreo filing in terms of texture and flavor.  The salt on top is a nice finish to the cookie.  But, I almost always prefer salty snacks to sweet ones, so I tend to enjoy that savory note in sweets.

How terrific! I love the variations in your shapes - and so professional looking. Mine spread a bit and weren't as "sharp" on the edges. But still delicious - I'm with you - the salt goes so well with the white pepper!
