Ingredients

Cookie

1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons water

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

Filling

3 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 to 4 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, 3/4 cup butter and water in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes, until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips; cook, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time, until mixture is smooth. Stir in all remaining cookie ingredients.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all filling ingredients except milk in mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread about 2 teaspoons frosting onto flat-side of one cookie; top with second cookie, flat-side down. Squeeze together gently. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Tip #1

Variation: Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies. Prepare cookies as directed above. Substitute 1/8 teaspoon peppermint or mint extract for vanilla in filling.

This is a delicious cookie. For Christmas I color two bowls of icing, one red and one green for a festive cream center, and a great presentation! Everyone gobbles these cookies up!
