Brownie Marshmallow Cookies

For the second week of February we give you another one of our most popular cookies. The Brownie Marshmallow Cookie is an awesome chocolate cookie with a layer of marshmallow underneath a layer of chocolate frosting. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! If you don't want to go to the trouble of making them, you can always just come buy some from us. We won't tell!

Brownie Marshmallow Cookies

1 cup butter
1 2/3 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 ¼ teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
2 1/3 cups cake flour (you can also use all purpose flour, just start with a bit less and check dough for stickiness)

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until blended well. Add dry ingredients and mix.  Cookies can be rolled, formed into drop cookies, or pressed into a 9 x 13 pan (double recipe and bake time).  Roll out dough and cut into circles. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Cookies are done when top is slightly cracked and no longer looks wet.

Marshmallow Creme
3 egg whites
2 cups light corn syrup
½ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
Combine egg whites, corn syrup, and salt.  Beat on high speed for 10 minutes or until thick.  Add powdered sugar and beat on low speed until blended.  Add vanilla and blend.  May be frozen for later use.

Chocolate Frosting
1 cup butter
4-5 cups powdered sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat soft butter, cocoa, and powdered sugar together until smooth. Add a splash of milk and vanilla, blend well.

Spread cooled cookies with about 1 tablespoon of marshmallow creme. Top the creme with frosting.
