Lemon Creme Sandwich recipe request

I am wondering where I can find a cookie recipe that makes a cookie like the store bought ones. I'm not as much interested in the filling, mostly the outer cookie layers. I am looking to create that firm type of cookie.
Here is an example of what I am trying to recreate.

This is a similar type of biscuit:

2 lbs (900 g) Flour
1 lb (450 g) Cornflour
1 lb (450 g) Margarine
6 Large Eggs
2 Level Tablespoons Baking Powder
1 lb (450 g) Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Essence

Cream margarine and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time and beat. Add Vanilla. Sift dry ingredients into above mixture. Dough should be as soft as putty. Roll out to 0.125 in thick, cut and bake in oven at 375 F (190 C) until golden brown.
Optional:
  • Add currants to mixture.
  • Roll in sugar before baking
  • Ice when cold.

Thanks for the recipe Snip 13. I just want to clarify that you mean "corn starch" when you say "corn flour"? I'm guessing you are using the UK term? This looks like a great recipe.

My pleasure Yes I do believe you call it corn starch in the US.

Thanks. And I really appreciate you posting the weights, I learned it's better to weigh than measure, it just works out better.

It makes about 2 dozen large cookies but it will make much more if you male thin small cookies.

Lemon shortbread cookie

I think you would want more of a shortbread cookie to fill with cream. Here is a good lemon shortbread cookie.

LEMON SHORTBREAD COOKIE

  • 1 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 Cup softened butter
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon grated lemon peel

Sift flour and measure; add salt and sift again.
Cream butter; gradually add lemon extract, lemon peel and powdered sugar. Continue to beat creamed mixture until light.
Combine the dry ingredients with the creamed mixture; blend thoroughly.
Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness; cut in rounds.
Prick cookies with fork.
Bake in preheated oven at 325F degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes until set.
Cool shortly on tray before removing.

These lemon melting moments are very nice. The addition of cornstarch give them a nice crisp texture.
