What To Do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, make chocolate wafers by mixing together flour, cocoa powder, baking
soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Beat in 1 stick of butter and the
egg until dough comes together. (You may have to use your hands.) Drop
48 rounded teaspoons of dough onto baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Slightly flatten dough with fingers.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until cookies look set. Let cool.
In a medium bowl, make cream filling by combining 1/2 stick of butter
and the shortening. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar and vanilla
until filling is fluffy. Place a teaspoon of filling onto center of one
chocolate wafer and lightly press another chocolate wafer on top until
cream comes to edge. Repeat with remaining wafers.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
