They actually are incredibly easy to make...and incredibly fudgy!
Eat them warm out of the oven or fill them with a creamy filling (and they will be like giant woopie pies!)
Crackle Cookie Sandwiches
1 cup dark chocolate, chopped, melted and cooled
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
If you want filling:
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 jar marshmallow cream
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
2. Beat 1/2 cup butter and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla,
and beat beat until well combined. Add 1 cup melted chocolate. With mixer on low speed, alternate adding
dry ingredients and milk until just combined. Chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.
3. Place 1 cup powdered sugar on a plate. Roll dough into smallish balls and then roll
in powdered sugar covering well. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on a baking sheet with parchment. Bake
until cookies have flattened and cracked on top, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool for two minutes on pan, then
transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely.
4. If you would like a filling, beat 1 cup butter on high speed until creamy. Add 1 1/2 cups powdered
sugar and beat until fluffy, stopping to scrape bowl. Beat in the marshmallow cream. Spread the filling
on the flat side of half of the cookies, then place remaining cookies, flat side in, on filling to make sandwiches.
