- With electric mixer, whisk butter and Lite&Sweet on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add eggs and salt, and continue mixing. Slowly add evaporated milk, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean, if using, until combined.
- Reduce mixer speed to low, and add flour until combined. Divide dough in two, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350˚F. Form dough into 1 tsp.-size round balls. Roll each ball in Lite&Sweet and place on baking sheet 2 inches apart. Lightly dip a small glass in flour and gently press down on dough balls to flatten into cookies. Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on wire rack.
- To make filling, place Lite&Sweet, chocolate chips, milk, and salt into saucepan. Heat gently until chocolate is melted, then cool in refrigerator at least 1 hour.
- Using spatula, spread desired amount of chocolate filling on each cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat process with remaining cookies and filling.
