Ingredients

For the cookie:

  • 1 1/4 cups gluten free flour blend
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (if your blend doesn't contain it already)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter (room-temperature)
  • 1 large egg

For the icing:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room-temperature)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and set oven racks to the middle of the oven.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • While mixing on low speed, add the butter and egg, and mix until the dough forms into a giant clump.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper or grease well.
  • Take a teaspoon of batter, and roll it into a ball with your hands. Then lightly press down on the ball to form a patty (not entirely, these will flatten out a bit in the oven).
  • Place about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.
  • To make the icing, cream butter and shortening in a bowl.
  • Then add the confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Keep mixing until the batter is light and fluffy.
  • To assemble cookies, take a spoon and put a little glob of frosting in the middle of the cookie.
  • Push down with the top cookie to make the icing cover all ends of the cookie.
  • You can also use a pastry bag to pipe the frosting if you would like.
  • Makes about 25-30 sandwich cookies.
