  • 3 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus 5 tablespoons for filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened


Preheat oven to 425°.


In a large mixing bowl, cream together 2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup shortening until fluffy. Add eggs and continue to beat. Stir together buttermilk, boiling water, 1 teaspoon vanilla and blend this into the creamed mixture at low speed.


Sift together 4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa. Add to mixture one cup at a time, blending well at low speed. Batter will be very thin but do not worry. Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Allow to cool and transfer onto wax paper.


To make the filling, place 5 tablespoons flour into saucepan and slowly add milk, stirring until smooth. Set over medium heat and cook, stirring until very thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. In a medium bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar, butter, 1/2 cup shortening and 1 teaspoon vanilla using a handheld electric mixer. Add the cooled flour mixture and whip until fluffy. Spread onto bottom side of cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator.
