Decadent Boston Cream Pie Cookies
Boston Cream pie has a unique flavor that most people fall in love with. The thick pastry cream gives the cake such a fantastic flavor. It is light and creamy, with a spongy cake that goes great with the rich chocolate. Now all of those flavors are in this sandwich cookie. 2 cookies with pastry cream in the middle and topped with chocolate ganache. How could it not be a family favorite?
Are These Boston Cream Pie Cookies a Cake Like Cookie?
These cookies have a similar flavor to the cake layer in a Boston Cream Pie. The cookies are spongy and have a different texture than a typical cookie but they are not quite like cake cookies.
Does Boston Cream Cake Cookies Need to be Refrigerated?
Because of the pastry cream pudding that is in the middle of these cookies, you will want to refrigerator them. The pastry cream is not able to sit out. To make these cookies taste their best, you will want to let the cookies come to room temperature when you eat them. But even cold, these cookies are amazing.
