Mini Chocolate Chip Love Sandwiches

Cookies

1 cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optional


Filling

1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1 1/3 cups Marshmallow Fluff or marshmallow creme

1/4 teaspoon salt dissolved in 1 tablespoon water

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Food coloring

Sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350°F.


Cream together the shortening, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add to the shortening mixture in batches, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.


Scoop out dough and roll into 3/4 or 1-inch balls. Place on a greased baking sheet two inches apart and bake for 9 minutes, or until done.


When the cookies are cool, make the filling. Beat together the butter, shortening, sugar, and marshmallow fluff until well combined. 


Dissolve the salt in the water and add to the marshmallow mixture. Add the vanilla and beat until smooth.


If tinting the filling, carefully drop food coloring in (I say carefully because I was aiming for light pink & ended up with magenta) and beat until color is evenly distributed and the color desired. 


Pipe or spread filling onto the flat side of a cookie and press a second cookie on top, twisting it a little to squeeze some of the frosting out of the sides. Then roll the sides in sprinkles!
