Method

 

For the cookies, put butter, sugars, treacle, egg and vanilla in a large bowl and mix together with an electric whisk or rotary beater until smooth.

In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients, except brown sugar.

Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix until a very sticky dough is formed.

Cover with cling film and chill for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 180°C, line two baking trays with baking paper.

Roll the cookie dough into balls, about a tablespoon in size, roll in the brown sugar.

Place on the lined trays, leaving about 2.5cm space between cookies.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until just lightly browned around the edges,

swap the trays over halfway through cooking.

Allow to cool on trays for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the filling:

Beat together cream cheese and lemon curd in a bowl until smooth and creamy.

Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a plain round piping tip.

Pipe a layer of the cream onto the base of half the cookies and sandwich together with the other half.
