INGREDIENTS (makes 36)

1 cup butter (Jonathan recommends salted European-Style butter for maximum flavor and texture!)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sour milk (don't have? 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice + 1 cup milk. Combine and let stand 5min)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup hot water
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Jonathan recommends raw cacao available from markets such as Whole Foods)
1 teaspoon (unrefined) sea salt or fleur de sel

1 1/2 cups (salted) butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 egg whites stiffly beaten


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

PIES: In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla and sour milk. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Stir together the baking powder and hot water then mix them into the batter last. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm but not overbaked. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

FILLING: In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and flour until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the milk and vanilla until well mixed, then fold in the egg whites. Sandwich at least 1 tablespoon of filling between the flat sides of two cookies.
