Oh. My. God. These cookies are quite possibly the best I’ve ever had. The rich moist flavor from the chocolate
On a floured surface, roll the dough until it’s about 1/8 inches thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut dough into two inch rounds. Place on prepared baking sheet. You can form and roll the dough scraps until dough is used up.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack and let cool completely.
On a work surface, place half of the cookies upside down. Whisk the chilled filling to lighten it. Dollop 1 teaspoon of filling into the center of each upside down cookie. Place second cookie on top of filling and press together until filling just comes to the edges.
These cookies are a process, but you won’t think twice about the time it took to make them as soon as you put one of these babies in your mouth.

I just made these today; i think i made them a little too thin..
I bought Medaglia D’oro brand from Whole Foods, but you can substitute the espresso powder for coffee powder… the only difference between instant espresso powder and instant coffee powder is that the espresso is stronger!
Well, with an introduction like that, these must be amazing! I have never purchased instant espresso powder before. Do you have a brand you recommend?
looks super delicious, wish I had one right now.
How do you find time to be a student and do all this baking?! And who eats all this great food once it’s made?
Can I suggest an unconventional pumpkin or pecan pie next week? Will look forward to your next post!
