Yield: 15 filled cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Vanilla Creme filling:
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 4 tablespoons shortening (butter-flavored Crisco)
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, cream shortening, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together until light and fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Alternately add dry ingredients with milk until just combined. Drop by the teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until soft-set; do not over bake. Cool and spread 1 cookie with about 1-1/2 tablespoons of Vanilla Creme filling. Place an additional cookie on top.

To make the Vanilla Creme filling, cream butter and shortening together in a small mixing bowl, then gradually beat in marshmallow creme. Blend in vanilla extract and confectioners' sugar; beat to spreading consistency.
