Makes about 12 cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (maybe a little more, add more if cookies are flat)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 jar marshmallow cream
optional - cream or milk
Heat oven to 400, and grease a cookie sheet.
Cream 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add egg, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Mix well.
Dry bowl: mix flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder. Add this dry mix slowly to the sugar mix while stirring. Don't overmix it though--only mix it until your ingredients just combine.
Drop dough onto cookie sheet in rounded balls, but leave a good 2 or 3 inches between cookies, they will spread out significantly while they cook. Use smaller balls if you want smaller cookies.
Bake cookies for 6-8 minutes, they shouldn't be mushy when you feel them. Let cookies cool before filling, or the cream filling will melt.
Marshmallow filling: In a medium bowl, blend cream filling ingredients. If this mix is too dry, you can add a cream to moisten it up a bit--whipping cream, half and half, and even milk will work. Mix or whip until smooth.
Fill cookies with cream, and see how long they last!
