Why I Love This Recipe

Here is a cookies similiar to Gobs (or Whoopie Pies) that sure does take care of the craving for something sweet!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
Filling Ingredients:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons marshmallow creme


Heat oven to 400°F.

Combine sugar and 1/2 cup butter in large mixer bowl.

Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low; add flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder alternately with milk, beating well after each addition (1 to 2 minutes).

Drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until top springs back lightly when touched.

Cool completely.

Combine all filling ingredients in small mixer bowl.

Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes).

Spread 1 level teaspoonful filling on flat-side of 1 cookie; top with second cookie, flat-side down. Squeeze together gently.

Repeat with remaining cookies.

TIP: Make cookies and filling ahead. Assemble just before serving.

Yield: 4 dozen sandwich cookies
