These Kossuth Cakes are another blast from the cookie past by way of Sugar, Sugar. Certainly more cookies than cakes, these vanilla wafers filled with sweet cream and topped with a chocolaty glaze are a nineteenth century treat named after Hungarian revolutionary General Lajos Kossuth. But history aside, these cookies have certainly stood the test of time.

There's something appealingly snack cake-like about these Kossuth Cakes—with their fudgy frosting and middles full of fluffy cream, not quite as s'mores-y as a Moon Pie but certainly in the same family. But we'd take these sandwich cookies over a Moon Pie any day of the week because, well, they're chocolate covered cookies stuffed with whipped cream.
