    Kat's Mom's Note:

    I no longer can buy Nabisco Famous Wafers in my area. I searched and found these on the King Arthur website. Stack the cookies, sandwiched between the optional filling, in the refrigerator overnight and they turn into a delicious cake-like dessert. These cookies will also make a good pie crust (see Mrs. Rowe's Chocolate Cookie Crust).

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    COOKIES

    FILLING

    • 2 cups whipping cream or 2 cups heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon espresso powder

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets, or more if you have them; you'll make 3 to 4 baking sheets' worth of cookies.
    2. 2
      In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the sugar, butter, salt, baking powder, and espresso powder.
    3. 3
      Beat in the egg and vanilla, then the flour and cocoa.
    4. 4
      Cover the dough, and chill for 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 350°F
    6. 6
      Roll the dough about 1/8" thick; use cocoa instead of flour to dust your rolling board and the dough.
    7. 7
      Cut into 2 1/2"-round cookies. A biscuit cutter is handy for this.
    8. 8
      Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Watch them closely at the end of the baking time, and if you start to smell chocolate before 10 minutes has gone by, take them out.
    9. 9
      When they're done, remove the cookies from the oven, and allow them to cool completely.
    10. 10
      FILLING: Whisk together the heavy cream and other ingredients. When blended, whip until the cream holds a soft peak.
    11. 11
      ASSEMBLY: Place one cookie on a small plate. Put about a tablespoon of whipped cream on top; our teaspoon cookie scoop, heaped up, works well here.
    12. 12
      Top with a second cookie, using it to compress the whipped cream to about a 1/4"-thick layer.
    13. 13
      Repeat with 4 more cookies, finishing with a layer of whipped cream.
    14. 14
      Refrigerate from 4 to 24 hours before serving.
    15. 15
      OTHER FLAVORING OPTIONS: To flavor 1 cup of cream, add one of the following combinations: *2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar + 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract; *2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar + 1/8 teaspoon coconut flavor; *2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar + 1/8 teaspoon peppermint oil; *1 tablespoon granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon Dutch processed cocoa + 1 teaspoon espresso powder.
