In Response to Re: Chocolate Cookies -- Your Favorite??:
Judy -- this is what I used just for the peppermint filling. Woopie Pies w/Peppermint Filling 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter , softened 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup milk FILLING 1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter , softened 1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow créme 2 cups powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract Red food color Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; set aside. Combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating well \ after each addition. Drop batter by scant tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until tops are just set. (DO NOT OVER BAKE.) Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; move entire sheet of parchment with cookies to wire cooling rack. Cool completely. Combine 1/2 cup butter and marshmallow crème in large bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add powdered sugar, peppermint extract and enough food color to tint filling to desired hue. Beat until well mixed. Spread 2 teaspoons filling onto bottom-side of half of cookies. Top each with second cookie, bottom-side down; press together slightly.
