I saw these bad boys over at Cookies and Cups. Never heard of that little blog??? Well, I just saw it yesterday and went right out to the store to start getting the goods for my sudden baking fest.
These cookies were super easy and DELISH! I 'revamped' the recipe and decided NOT to make sandwiches. I do not like cookie sandwiches, in my opinion, there is not enough frosting for the cookies or it just squeezes out of the sides. Here is the recipe:
Chocolate Chip Filled "Melting Moments"
1/2 c. AP flour
1/2 c. cake flour
3/4 c. cornstarch
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter (I used salted) ~ room temp
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 t. vanilla
1 stick butter ~ room temp
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
rounded 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
Preheat to 300
Line baking sheets with parchment
Sift both flours, cornstarch, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.
In mixer bowl beat butter and powdered sugar on medium for about a minute, until light and fluffy, scraping down sides as necessary. Add vanilla and mix until blended. On low speed add the flour mixture and mix until crumbly dough forms.
Measure 1 level tablespoon of dough, now pull into 2 equal parts. Roll each half into a smooth ball of dough, placing on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Once all the cookies are on the baking sheet take a fork and press down in the dough flattening it, leaving the fork tine impression.
Bake cookies until bottom are slightly golden, but the tops do not get color, about 20 minutes.
Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes and then transfer to wire cooling rack.
In mixer with paddle attachment beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth on medium speed.
Add the chocolate chips and mix on low until chips are combined.
Fill ziplock with the filling and cutting off the tip of the bag squeeze about a teaspoon on one half of the cookie.
