2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 pound room temperature butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup marshmallow creme

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and soda. Beat 1/4 pound of the butter and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in egg and 1 tsp of the vanilla.

Beat in half the flour mixture, the milk and the remaining flour mixture. Drop 2 level Tbsp per cookie about 5 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Spread each mound to form a circle approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Bake until center springs back when lightly pressed, about 10 minutes.

Beat remaining 8 Tbsp butter with remaining 1 tsp vanilla and confectioners sugar until smooth. Beat in marshmallow creme until mixture is light and fluffy. Spread filing on half the cookies. Top with remaining halves.
