  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • 1-1/2 cups marshmallow creme
  • 1-1/4 cups shortening
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease a baking sheet.

For cookies, combine butter, cocoa and coffee or espresso powder.  Stir well and set aside for 15 minutes.  In separate bowl, combine pie crust mix and powdered sugar.  Add cocoa mixture, egg, vanilla and sour cream.  Mix until dough forms.  On floured surface, roll out to 1/4” thickness.  Cut into desired shapes.  Bake 8 - 10 minutes.  Cool.  In saucepan, combine simple syrup ingredients.  Over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved.  Brush tops of cookies with syrup.  For filling, cream marshmallow crème and shortening.  Add powdered sugar and vanilla.  Mix well.  Spread on flat side of half of cookies.  Top with remaining cookies.  Dip edge in sprinkles (sprinkles will stick to filling).  For glaze, place chocolate chips in bowl.  Heat cream and pour over chocolate chips.  Let set for 1 minute to melt.  Using a whisk, stir well.  Drizzle over cookies.
