  • 1  3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup marshmallow cream

Yield: 24 cookies

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.


In a large bowl, blend together the brown sugar and butter.


Mix in the eggs


and vanilla.


Then alternately add the buttermilk


and flour mixture


mixing until just combined.


Drop level tablespoons of batter onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.


Bake 6 – 8 minutes or until the tops are set and spring back when lightly pressed. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack or paper towel and let cool completely.


When the cookies are cool, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and marshmallow cream


until fluffy, about 3 minutes.


Spread 1 tablespoon of filling onto half of the cookies,


and then sandwich with the remaining cookies.


Serve immediately or refrigerate, in a single layer, in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

These are very rich and literally melt-in-your mouth.

Why are you still sitting here?  Get to the kitchen and get baking!

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I think rather than baking tonight, I’d like to stop by your kitchen for a sample! 🙂 They look delicious!

      C’mon down. Although – the wind has been blowing out of the west all day at about 45 mph and you’ll be flying into the wind, so it may take you a while. Not to worry though, I made plenty.

  2. I’m sitting here because I just pulled homemade shortcakes from the oven. Will be having strawberry shortcake a bit later. Can’t wait. The whoopie pies do look good.
