Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

2 to 3 teaspoons Irish cream liqueur  

Topping

Powdered sugar, if desired

 

 *Substitute 2 to 3 teaspoons very strong brewed cold coffee.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 3/4 cup butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; shape each half on lightly floured surface into 8-inch long square log with 1 1/2-inch sides. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 325°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut logs into 1/4-inch square slices with sharp knife. Place squares 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until set.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar and 1/4 cup butter in bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough liqueur for desired spreading consistency. Spread about 1 teaspoon filling on cookie, top with second cookie. Press together gently. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Tip #1

- Make sure not to slice the cookie dough too thick or the cookies will not be crisp.

Tip #2

- To make ahead, prepare cookies as directed; cool completely. Freeze in airtight container up to 1 month. When ready to use, thaw cookies completely. Prepare filling and assemble cookie sandwiches as directed.

These have been my absolute favorite Christmas cookies since I discovered this recipe 10 years ago! The deep cocoa flavor of the cookie goes perfectly with the sweet Bailey's cream filling, and the cookies are just the perfect size. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
