Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon 10% cream

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg yolk. Beat in sour cream and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions to make smooth dough.

Roll by 1 tsp (5 mL) into balls; arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Flatten into 1-inch (2.5 cm) rounds. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm to the touch, 5 to 6 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 2 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool.

Filling: In small bowl, beat butter until fluffy; beat in sugar and cream until smooth. Spread 1/2 tsp (2 mL) over bottoms of half of the cookies; sandwich, bottom side down, with remaining cookies. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
