I made white chocolate Sachertortes with almond extract.  Some I drizzled with melted white chocolate, some with semi sweet chocolate and some with both.
They are lovely and taste great.
This is my third batch of Sachertortes and my last for some time.   I'm going to make something else!!

I have the Sacher Torte cookies recipe in a1984 book that uses either  margarine or butter. It also uses margarine or butter melted with the chocolate chips.

I think the old margarine didn't have water added to it and I believe all the "modern" margarine does.  I wouldn't add anything with water to chocolate.  it could seize.

Tuesday night I gave a big foil cake pan full of cookies to some young men who came to sing at our church.  Glorious young men!!
After the service we had a great meal for them and, bless their hearts, they were wild for the cookies.   Their favorite was the White Chip Island Cookie from this site.

I'm always happy to try a new recipe.  On the Betty Crocker site I saw a Quick-Mix Chocolate Cookie that turned out so good.
I decided to make them into sandwich cookies and used a Peppermint Filling I found on the Land O Lakes site.  I ended with very good, very pretty cookies.  I'll be making these again and again.

Tonight I'm trying the German Chocolate Sandwich cookies that sound so good on the Land O Lakes site.

Nancy, I picture your room in the Lords house as a HUGE kitchen with a huge double oven.  
Large cabinets where you can post your recipes. 
A huge double Sub Zero Freezer and a double refrigerator to match. 
And a large Hobart commercial mixer.
You will never run out of ingredients.

Chocolate with peppermint sounds really good.  I'll have to hunt up that site.

Judy -- this is what I used just for the peppermint filling. 

Woopie Pies w/Peppermint Filling

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
FILLING

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow créme

2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Red food color
Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. 
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; set aside. 
Combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl; beat
at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating
until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture alternately
with milk, beating well \ after each addition. 

Drop batter by scant tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until tops are just set. (DO NOT OVER BAKE.)
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; move entire sheet of parchment
 with cookies to wire cooling rack. Cool completely. 

Combine 1/2 cup butter and marshmallow crème in large bowl;
beat at medium speed until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add

I beg your pardon M'damm. 
I should have known you would be in a mansion. 
I do hope I would be invited for a bit of  half sweet tea and some cookies. Oh, why bother with the half sweet....we don't have to watch our weight anymore do we......?

I sure wish I had the ability to watch my weight NOW.    Well, I guess I do.   I watch it grow and grow and grow.   LOL LOL.
When I smoked I was so skinny that my doctor yelled at me and threatened hospitalization

I have always used the filling for my Whoopie Pies that starts with a cooked flour and milk mixture.
 I find that comes out better than the filling made with the marshmallow cream stuff.  
Not that I don't like marshmallow cream I think it goes much better on a sandwich with peanut butter or Nutella.

Right now, Judy -- I'm baking some German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies.   The filling is made and waiting in the fridge.  The second sheet of cookies is in the oven - one more to go.  When they are completely cool I can taste the first one.
This is another recipe from Land O Lakes.   
Last night I made some Coconut Almond cookies frosted with squiggles of white chocolate.  They are OK ...... but I don't want OK cookies .... I want the GREAT.

This afternoon I was trying to make some CRAZY DIPPED PRETZEL RODS........ which I've made before with great success.  Today I tried to use some peanut butter chips - carefully following directions. 
Whew ..... I did not get any that I could use on the pretzel rods.  The other stuff - chocolate chips and white chips worked just fine.   I used a bit of red frosting in a tube to add a touch of color.
The kids are gonna' love 'em.
