Rocky Road Cookie Sandwiches (a la Rachael Ray)
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped almonds
10 tablespoons marshmallow cream
Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Using a mixer, cream the butter, and brown sugar until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg. Mix in the salt, baking powder, and baking soda at low speed, then mix in the vanilla and flour. Stir in the chocolate chips and almonds. Drop 10 rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake the cookies until golden at the edges and slightly soft in the center, about 12 minutes. Transfer the cookie sheets to racks to cool completely. Sandwich the cookies with 2 Tablespoons of marshmallow each.
Next time we're going to put softened ice cream inside. ☺
They were very yummy, but almost too chocolatey, so I would reduce the chocolate chips for my taste.
