I’m happy to host Sue who blogs at Munchkin Munchies today. She is always baking up fun a whimsical treats for her little munchkins. I’ve lost track of how many grandchildren she has – but I know they much have a blast at Grandma’s house!

Hello Cookie Fans!  When Katrina invited me to her cookie event I was so honored and excited!  I am very happy to be here with her and all the other cookie bakers “In Katrina’s Kitchen”! I just love her site; it’s such a happy spot on the internet:)   My name is Sue and the name of my blog is Munchkin Munchies.  I love baking, especially with my munchkins (grandchildren) in mind.

Gingerbread Men Sandwich Cookies @KatrinasKitchen

I had such a hard time deciding on which cookie to make, but finally picked a classic Christmas cookie with a bit of a different spin, a  gingerbread man sandwich cookie.  The cookie recipe itself is a little more of a spice, butter cookie than a traditional gingerbread cookie, but it worked out great with the chocolate, marshmallow filling.

I was really happy with how all the flavors worked together just right. I used a gingerbread recipe that I hadn’t used before and a filling recipe from another cookie that was found at parenting.com.

Ingredients

  • For the Gingerbread Cookies:
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Royal icing
  • For the Marshmallow Filling:
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow cream

Instructions
 

  • For the Gingerbread Cookies:
  • Combine sugar, butter, egg, molasses and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients.
  • Beat until well mixed. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).
  • Heat oven to 375ยฐF. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 4-inch cookie cutter.
  • Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely. Match up pairs of cookies that are similar.
  • Decorate half of them with royal icing details to look like gingerbread men. While the icing dries prepare filling.
  • For the Marshmallow Filling:
  • Place chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl; heat about 1 minute, until just melted. Let stand for 30 minutes, or until slightly stiff.
  • Heat marshmallow cream in microwave for 10 seconds to soften. Spread marshmallow on a cookie, chocolate on another and sandwich together.
