Sandwich Cookie Cake

I finally got around to using a cookie pan set my mother bought me from her store (Williams-Sonoma). When it’s all said and done, the cake should look like a big cookie. There is something not quite right about it. It looks good, but I think I should have trimmed off the bottom half of …

In The Kitchen – make your own iced coffee
