Grasshopper Pie Cookies Recipe

Fluffy creme de menth chocolate sandwich cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/8 teas salt
  • 1/2 teas baking powder
  • 1 teas baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter divided
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teas vanilla
  • 2 cups marshmallow cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbs creme de menth

Instructions
 

  • Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and soda; Set aside.
  • In a double boiler over simmering water, melt 1 stick butter with the chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  • When chocolate cools to room temperature, in the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand held mixer, add the brown sugar. Add egg and mix until combined. Slowly add the flour mixture until well combined, stopping to scrape the sides if needed.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and cool for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Remove cookie dough from fridge. Scoop out heaping tablespoons onto baking sheet. (The dough will be hard to scoop). Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes then move to a wire rack. When the cookies have cooled to a manageable temperature, use a sharp knife and safety skills to slice the cookies in half. Let cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling. Cream together the 1 stick butter with the powdered sugar. Add the marshmallow fluff and creme de menth.
  • For more minty flavors, add Andes mint chips to the dough, or brush the cooling cookie halves with creme de menth, or just add more liquor to the filling. I won't tell if you don't.
