Ingredients

COOKIE

1/2 c
shortening
1/4 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar
1
egg
1/4 c
molasses
2 1/4 c
flour
2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
sea salt
1 tsp
cinnamon
3/4 tsp
ginger
3/4 tsp
all spice
1/4 tsp
fresh ground or course black pepper
3 Tbsp
sugar for rolling

CREAM FILLING

4 oz
mascarpone cheese, room temperature (cream cheese would work too)
2 Tbsp
butter, softened
3 Tbsp
molasses
2 c
powdered sugar, maybe a little more

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening, butter and sugars. Then add egg and molasses, mixing well. Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and all spice. Add flour mixture and pepper to creamed mixture. Mixing until combined. Roll 3/4"-1" balls, I used a small cookie dough scoop. Roll in sugar, place on cookie sheet, flatten slightly with bottom of a glass. There should be 1" between the cookies after you flatten them.
2
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Tops will crack when done. Allow to cool on sheets 2 minutes, then remove to racks to cool completely.
3
Filling: In a medium bowl, mix together mascarpone, butter and molasses until smooth. Then add in powdered sugar. You can either use a spoon or piping bag to fill cookie sandwiches. I used about 1 1/2 T or so, of cream filling per sandwich. I had enough filling for 30 sandwich cookies. You may have filling left over...just fill some ritz or grahms :o)
4
Store in an air tight container, preferably in the refrigerator because of the mascarpone cheese.
