Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

These cookies look a little like Oreos or possibly moon pies. They’re more like Oreos in flavor, only a bit softer and they don’t have that weird chemical burn Oreos can have – they taste of chocolate cookies and creamy filling.

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, softened
1 c
sugar
1 large
egg
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 c
flour
1/2 c
cocoa powder
3/4 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt

FILLING

3 Tbsp
butter, softened
2 1/2 c
powdered sugar
2 Tbsp
milk
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.
2
Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt all at once. Mix until just well combined.
3
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a 1 inch diameter roll and wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper. You may need to refrigerate it a while to make it easier to shape.
4
Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight until it’s firm enough to slice. Heat oven to 375.
5
Slice rolls 1/8 inch thick and place slices about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. They’ll spread a little more than you may expect – don’t place them too close together.
6
Bake 8-10 minutes at 375. Remove cookies from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
7
For filling, beat together all ingredients until uniform.
8
Make sandwiches of the cookies, either by spreading a bit of filling on the bottom of one cookie then sticking it to the bottom of another or by squishing a small marble size ball of filling between the two.
9
Store the cookies covered in the fridge, since the creamy filling contains butter and is perishable.
