Oh. My. Goodness. I love these cookies. They are so easy to make and everyone loves them. I get asked to bring these to a lot of gatherings, and everyone always wants the recipe. So, for public consumption of exquisite deliciousness, here it is!
Mix 3C flour, 2T baking soda, and 1/2t salt. In a small pan, melt 1-1/2 sticks butter with 1-1/2C brown sugar and 2T water. When melted, add 2C semisweet chocolate chips and stir til melted. Cool it a bit and beat in 2 eggs. Stir in the flour mixture. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes at 350F. Cool on racks.
For the filling, beat 1/3C softened butter with 3C confectioners sugar, 1/2t peppermint extract, and 1/4 C milk.
Now, spread a heaping teaspoon of filling on the bottom of one cookie. Put a second cookie on top. Fill all the cookies.
These keep very well in an airtight container. But they usually don’t last anytime at all!
Enjoy the cookies!
Love, Grammy ❤
