Molasses Sandwich Cookies

Molasses Sandwich Cookies (Adapted from Everyday Food)

For the cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses

For the filling

12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons molasses
2 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted

To make the cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until combined. Beat in egg, followed by molasses, until smooth and well incorporated. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined.

Using a teaspoon cookie scoop, drop the dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until the center of the cookies are dry to the touch, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and let sit on the baking sheets for about 1 to 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the filling

In a medium bowl, beat together butter and molasses until creamy. Add in confectioners' sugar and continue mixing until smooth and spreadable. Spread the filling, about a rounded teaspoonful, on the bottoms of half of the cookies. Place the remaining cookies on top.

Makes 30 cookies.
