Ingredients

1/4 lb
unsalted butter
1 1/4 c
salt
2 large
eggs
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1/2 c
unsweetened cocoa
2 c
flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
4 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 tsp
vanilla extract
4 c
confectioner's sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the cookies, cream the butter with the sugar in a large bowl until light. Beat in eggs and vanilla; set aside. Sift the cocoa, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together.
2
Stir the dry ingredients thoroughly into the butter mixture. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 or 3 hours. Preheat the oven to 375 F and butter 2 cookie sheets.
3
Using a teaspoon measure, roll level teaspoons of the dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart on the sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 mins, until cookies are puffed and surfaces slightly dry and cracked. Cool on racks.
4
To make the filling, cream the butter until light. Beat in the vanilla and powdered sugar, adding whipping cream and continuing to beat until the consistency is like creamy frosting.
5
Makes about 3 dozen sandwiches.
6
Variation : For half a batch of vanilla-filled and half a batch of peppermint-filled cookies, add ⅛ teaspoon peppermint extract to half the filling. Tint the peppermint filling pink or green before filling half the sandwiches.
