Finally! The cookie recipe! My amazing neighbor and friend Samarah ( who is Mom to baby Noelle, born Christmas Day) invited Sunny and I over to bake cookies the other day.
I took lots of pictures, but sadly, I didn’t get to get shots of everything due to someone throwing a tantrum and needing a nap in her crib- I’m not naming names.
For the COOKIES you need:
6 tablespoons of Butter (softened)
1 cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
5 tablespoons of Unsweetened Cocoa
1 cup of Milk
BUTTER CREAM FROSTING you need:
3/4 cup of softened butter
3/4 cup of powered sugar
6 tablespoons of marshmallow fluff
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Pre-heat oven to 400
In a separate bowl stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, & salt. Add to butter mixture, alternately with milk, beating until just smooth.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfulls onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for about 8 minutes or until firm to the touch. Transfer to cooling rack and let the cookies cool completely.
In the meantime, prepare your butter cream. In a small bowl beat butter, powedered sugar, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla together. Voila! Buttercream!
Spread the BOTTOMS of 1/2 the cooled cookies with buttercream filling. Top with remaining cookies, TOP SIDE UP. ( we’re making a little cookie sandwich people)
Eat and enjoy! They are yummy!!!!
SIDE NOTE: I thought you could skip the marshmallow fluff, but I was wrong. The marshmallow is what gives the cookie it’s personality. If anything skip the buttercream and just use marshmallow fluff in the center of the cookies.
