New moon pies

Twilight new moon pies

Retro cookies with a punch of flavor. Perfect dessert post-blood sucking for even the fullest vampire.

Makes about 12 cookies

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 12 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (7-ounce jar) marshmallow cream

Chocolate coating:

  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter until smooth. Add the sugar and continue mixing until well blended. Add the vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the cocoa powder, cornstarch and flour. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and blend just until combined.
  4. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap and chill at least two hours or overnight.
  5. On a floured work surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out to one-eighth-inch thick.
  6. Use flour-dipped cookie cutters to cut out 1-1/2-inch diameter circles and place them on an ungreased sheet pan, leaving one-inch between the cookies.
  7. Bake until crisp, 12 to 14 minutes and let cool on the pan.
  8. Put marshmallow cream into a pastry bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe a dab of marshmallow onto half of the cookies and top with the rest to make sandwiches.
  9. Let stand at room temperature for two hours.


Chocolate coating:

  1. Melt chocolate and oil together in the top of a double boiler or a bowl set over barely simmering water, stirring occasionally.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  3. One at a time, gently drop the marshmallow-filled cookies into the hot chocolate and lift out with a fork and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.
  4. Place on the cookie sheet and let set at room temperature until the coating is firm, about one to two hours.

@EJ -- some people like making things from scratch... I guess we should do away with cookie recipes as well, huh? Just eat Chips Ahoy because it's SO much easier. Thanks for the great article, Brandi!

"These cute little lollipops are easy to make and will make a fun addition to any Twilight fiesta!" You know what's even easier? BUYING RED LOLLIPOPS! A bit of the old SEO writing is it? I don't imagine it pays well.
