I know that abroad, instead, they're really really appreciated, especially in the English-speaking world ( U.K., U.S.A. ...).
This is a funny and easy recipe to have really big kind of Oreo cookies, perfect for children and teen-ager parties but even for unformal meetings with friends maybe for a tv- movie night.
For 4 serves you need:
3 1/2 oz. dark chocolate
6 oz. all purpose flour
2 oz. bitter cocoa powder
1 1/2 oz. butter
2 oz. sugar
1 oz. icing sugar
a sprinkle of salt
1 cup milk cream
Chop chocolate and let it melt "bagnomaria".
Mix butter with sugar very well then add vanilla flavour, egg and the melted chocolate.
Add then cocoa, flour and a sprinkle of salt; mix again untill you have a smooth dough.
Stretch it with a roll-pin in a layer of about 1/4 inch, if it's stitcky don't add flour but icing sugar.
With a cookie cutter round shaped or a glass cut biscuits in even number.
Put them on a buttered baking tin and cook for about 8 minutes in pre-heated oven at 345°F.
Let them get cold, then whip milk cream with icing sugar, spread whipped cream on a cookie then cover with another.
Put in fridge for at least 2 hours then serve cold.
P.S. If you want to give a spicy touch you can add at the cookie dough a generous sprinkle of red chili pepper powder.
It fits great!
