Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In another bowl, stir together butter, sugar, and egg. Add flour mixture, and stir until a dough forms.

  • Divide dough in half; roll out between two sheets of parchment paper to a 1/4-inch thickness. Stack on a baking sheet, and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut dough into rounds. Place on sheets, 1 inch apart. Bake until cookies are firm and fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to wire racks, and let cool.

  • Spread half the cookies with 1 tablespoon Cream Filling; top with remaining cookies.

Cook's Notes

Chill and reroll the dough scraps to cut out even more cookies. Because there's butter in the cream filling, store these cookies in the refrigerator. For a minty touch, add a few drops of peppermint oil to the filling.

Gluten-free variation: omit wheat flour and use 1/2 cup sweet white rice flour, 1/4 cup millet flour, 2 tablespoons oat flour, 2 tablespoons sorghum flour, 2 tablespoons tapioca starch, 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum. Bake 6-8 minutes.

I tried this recipe as it is and I didn't have to add any extra liquids. The dough was crumbly but not dry. They turned out really well. I'd make them again but I'm going to look for a better cream filling-this one was sweeter than i like. :)

Okay, the dough was WAY TOO dry and would NEVER come together like it showed on the TV show...I think the ingredients were wrong. So...I added an additional egg (2 total) and 3 additional tablespoons of melted butter (8 tablespoons butter total). Mix in a kitchen aid and it came out AWESOME. I had no problem rolling it out between wax paper. I thought it was a great idea!

I could not form the dough. It was very crumbly, but the cookies were good after cooked.

I made this one - you will not believe how much it tastes like Oreos, but I had a few complaints: http://marthaandme.wordpress.com/2009/03/26/oh-for-oreo/
