3/4 c shortening 1/2 c butter 2 c sugar 1 egg 2 1/2 c flour 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa Filling: 2 c powdered sugar 1/2 c butter 2 Tbsp heavy cream 2 Tbsp vanilla Process/mix the shortening and butter. Gradually beat in sugar and egg, beating well after each addition, until mixture is light and lemon-colored. Sift flour & cocoa and add to creamed mixture. Shape dough into several rolls, each 1" in diameter. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap & cut rolls of dough into 1/8" slices. (For more authentic looking cookies, it's a nice idea to impress a fancy design in the top layer of the cookie with a butter mold or clean rubber stamp just before baking!) Place on ungreased sheet & bake for 5-8 minutes. Cool before adding the filling. To make filling, cream powdered sugar & butter together; add cream & vanilla. Create a cookie "sandwich" with two cookies & a generous dab of filling. Cookies will keep for up to 2 weeks in a cookie jar and for 4-5 months in the freezer.
