What a coincidence -- a little girl in my neighborhood sold me two boxes of Girl Scouts cookies today.

But I have to wait until March for her to deliver them!

I'll be waiting patiently (HA!!!) for my Tagalongs and Thank U Berry Munch cookies.

Delacre Belgian cookies. The tins come in an assortment and any one of them is perfect from the tuiles to the shortbread, but there's a little butter wafer in there that's so perfect and crisp it's a gem and I hoard them.

For homemade, antiquesmountainapache posted a refrigerator butter cookie recipe that's been on heavy rotation, but I added lots of chopped almonds and some orange zest, and made them sandwich cookies with a mocha cream cheese filling. You give up the crisp with the filling, but it's hard to give up the filling.

For store bought, one or two Lorna Doones. That's enough for delicious. More and you're sick of them.

I'd like a good ol' homemade oatmeal raisin cookie

I used to enjoy some fruit filled butter cookies from Pepperidge Farm, can't remember the name. But around 1990 the withdrew them. Later they came out with a similar looking replacement Pepperidge Farm® - Verona® Cookies but in these the filling is more sweetness than fruit flavor and I don't care for them. The withdrawn ones came in apricot and strawberry flavors.

I came home from a quick dash to the drugstore and read your post. I'm so glad everyone likes my cookie recipe -- it was my grandmother's. This just made my afternoon. I love reading all of the additions and "tweeks" to the recipe. The cream cheese filling sounds extra yummy! Anything with cream cheese is good in my book. Do you mind sharing your filling recipe? Thanks.
