Total Time1 hr 25 mins

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup (Dark) Cacao Powder
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Cream Filing:

  • 1.5 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 tbsp. Milk

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix together the sugar and extra virgin olive oil for 1 minute in a separate bowl. 
  • Add in the egg into the sugar mixture and whisk for another 30 seconds. Add in the milk and vanilla extract, whisk until well combined. 
  • Sift the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Mix together until evenly distributed. 
  • Form the batter into a rectangle-form and cover with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Roll out the dough to be 1/8" thick. Using a circular cookie cutter, or another kitchen item, make the circles about 2" thick in diameter. 
  • Place the cut-out dough pieces on a pan with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes. 
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely.

For Cream Filling:

  • In a small bowl, add together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Using a hand mixer, whisk until a thick, creamy filling begins to form. 
  • Give it a taste test and don't be afraid to add in a little bit more of powdered sugar and/or milk, according to your preference. 
  • Add about 1 tbsp. of cream filling on one cookie, and another cookie on top of the filling, and very gently squeeze together until the cream filling is evenly filled out. Then, scrap the remaining cream filling off the sides.
  • Enjoy with some milk!
