Culinary SOS: Farmeeoh cookies
The Farm of Beverly Hills' chocolate sandwich dessert is magnificently rich.
(Anne Cusack / Los Angeles Times / July 25, 2013)
Dear SOS: I just love the Farmeeoh cookies at the Farm of Beverly Hills, especially the chocolate cookie part. Do you think you could get the recipe?
Dear Genevieve: The Farm of Beverly Hills' supersized chocolate sandwich cookies are a spectacularly large and magnificently rich wonder to behold — just one of their dense chocolate cookies with its sugary-sweet and buttery filling could feed a small family for dessert. They were happy to share their recipe for us, which we've downsized into smaller versions of the original. Now you can have your cookies and eat them too.
Total time: 1 hour, 20 minutes, plus chilling time for the dough
Servings: Makes about 2 ½ dozen Farmeeoh sandwich cookies
