To make these I simply cut out the mini cones from some sugar cookie dough (I always have dough rolled out in my freezer, makes life simpler). I under-baked them just slightly to make sure they are soft just like the filling. Then I made the below recipe for the chocolate filling. Once the filling is made, I roll it out between 2 sheets of crisco'd (this is now a word, lol) plastic wrap and then I cut it out with the same cutter I used to make the cookies...clever eh? That way you have perfectly matching cookies & cream! Then simply press your cream between you cookies and enjoy!
Chocolate Cream Filling: (modified from The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion)
- 3/4 tsp. gelatin
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
In meantime, cream shortening and vanilla, then add in dry ingredients, cream together. Finally add in the gelatin and mix to combine.
Well there you have it...enjoy! Happy baking...happier eating!
