Chocolate Cream Filled Cookies
My girlfriends at work just loved them and wanted the recipe for them. I had to make 10 copies!
- Serves: 30 persons
- 6tablespoons butter, softened
- ¼cup white sugar
- 1large egg
- 2tablespoons corn syrup
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ⅓cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1cup confectioners' sugar
- ¼cup confectioners' sugar
- ½cup butter, softened
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
Step 2Using an electric mixer, beat 6 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup sugar in a large bowl until creamy. Add the egg; beat until smooth. Beat in corn syrup. Whisk together the flour and cocoa in a small bowl. Beat half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well incorporated. Beat in the remaining flour. Divide dough in half.
Step 3On a lightly floured board, roll each half of the dough into a rectangle. Cut each large rectangle into 1x3 inch rectangles. Place cookies on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until firm, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cookies stand on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Step 4While the cookies are baking, make the filling. Heat chocolate chips in a small saucepan on lowest heat. Stir until chocolate is almost completely melted. Remove from heat; stir until smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature. Beat 1 cup confectioners' sugar and 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl until smooth. Scrape the melted chocolate into the bowl; beat well.
Step 5Spread 1/2 teaspoon filling on the bottom of 30 cooled cookies; top with remaining cookies. Sprinkle filled cookies with confectioners' sugar.
