Boston Cream Pie Cookies

October 23rd is National Boston Cream Pie Day

A Boston cream pie is a cake with a cream filling. The dessert acquired its name when cakes and pies were cooked in the same pans, and the words were used interchangeably. (The opposite naming convention is still current in French, where anything baked in a rectangular loaf pan is called a cake.) In the later part of the 19th century, this type of cake was variously called a "cream pie", a "chocolate cream pie", or a "custard cake".
