Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 1 pkg (8 oz/250 g) cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups icing sugar

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg; beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, making 3 additions of flour mixture and 2 of buttermilk.

Drop by heaping 2 tbsp (30 mL), about 3 inches (8 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets to make 24 mounds.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until tops slightly crack and spring back when lightly touched, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack.

Cream Cheese Filling: In bowl, beat together cream cheese, butter and salt until smooth. Beat in icing sugar, 1 cup (250 mL) at a time, until smooth. Drop about 3 tbsp (45 mL) icing over each bottom of half of the cookies; sandwich with tops.
