Cream Filled Cookies

It's been a while since I posted on here, I guess I've been slacking.  And surprise, it's a dessert!  These are seriously awesome cookies though.  These cookies are pretty easy, and super tasty too.  I bet kids would love them.  They are a basic chocolate cookie, with a marshmallow-cream filling.

Makes about 12 cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
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
Cream Filling:
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!

    1. Can you put labels on your posts so we can search by "chicken" or "dessert" and find the recipes more easily? If you are going to ever do anything with this blog again, that is. If not....well I can scroll through. :)
