Tiffany Sandwich Cookies

These cookies came from my mom’s best high school friend’s mom, Mrs. Tiffany.  These cookies are a special treat with coconut, oatmeal, and cornflakes with a chocolate cream these filling.  YUM!  They do take some time to make, which is why they are usually a once a year Christmas treat.  They are well worth it though.

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on Match.com. My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
