Yeehaw Pies

One taste of these ginormous cookies and they jumped into my (and Adam's) top five favorite cookies. This retro cookie will become a regular in my cookie baking rotation!

This makes about 14 sandwiches.

The Yee
1/2 cup vegetable shortening (I used butter flavored crisco)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Cream shortening with sugar. Add vanilla, egg and milk. Sift cocoa, flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and add to creamed mixture. Drop by spoonful on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 12 minutes. Cool.

And the haw:
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 to 2 cups of Marshmallow Fluff
1 tsp. vanilla

Whip shortening with sugar until smooth. Blend in fluff and vanilla. Go through the baked cookies searching for similar shapes and pair them up. Spread filling onto the flat side of one cookie, then place second cookie on top, making a sandwich.
