Learn How it Works...
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
2 to 3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl; set aside.
Combine 1 cup sugar and 3/4 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add egg and molasses; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Place 1/4 cup sugar in small bowl. Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls; roll each in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5-7 minutes or until edges are set. (Cookies will have cracks.) Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except half and half in small bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Continue beating; adding enough half and half for desired filling consistency. Spread bottom-side of 1 cookie with rounded teaspoonful filling; top with another cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies.
- To make ahead, bake cookies as directed. Place unfilled cookies in containers with tight-fitting lids. Freeze up to 1 month. Prepare filling the day you are serving cookies.
- For uniform crackling on top of cookies, bake one cookie sheet at a time.
