Drunken Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients

For the Dough
1 cup Beer
1 cup of Oil
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 packet vanilla sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Sugar Glaze
3/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup Splenda, Granulated
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
For the Filling

Preparation

2
Dough
3
Put all ingredients into a deep mixing bowl and mix it all up with your hands.
4
Put the dough in the fridge for about half hour.
5
Flour your work surface and begin by pinching off a large piece of dough and rolling it out with a rolling pin.
6
Get a round cookie cutter, cut out your shapes, and arrange them on a baking sheet.
7
Put them in the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes.
8
This recipe yields about 60-70 cookies (before they are stacked) so have another baking sheet ready to go once the first batch is done.
9
Allow the cookies to completely cool before moving on to the next step.
10
Sugar Glaze
11
Prepare your glaze by pouring the water in a saucepan followed up by adding in the sugar and Splenda.
12
Stir well over medium-low heat to dissolve the sugar then add in the almond extract and the orange zest.
13
Blend it all together, take it away from the heat, and set it aside in a small bowl that’s deep enough to dunk in the cookies.
14
Stacking the Cookies
15
Get a cookie and spread about ¼ teaspoon of the sweet orange marmalade on the flat side of the cookie; cover it with another cookie, flat side over the marmalade - like a sandwich.
16
Dunk the entire cookie inside the sugar glaze and let any excess drip off. Continue to do this until you’ve run out of cookies.
17
Sprinkle all the cookies with some orange zest and put them aside for a little while (about an hour) before serving them. You want to allow the cookie to soak up the glaze.

Beer!!! Need I say more? :-)
These cookies are my own - I tried to work something out with whole wheat flour and sugar substitute...in the end, this is what I came up with. They're nice and sweet!
