3/4 c. shortening
2 eggs
1 1/4 c. sour milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
6 T. cocoa
1/2 c. milk
3 T. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. softened margarine
1 c. confectionary sugar
3 T. (heaping) marshmallow fluff
1 tsp. vanilla

COOKIE: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the cookie ingredients together (sour milk can be made by adding 1 T. of vinegar to 1 c. of milk and let stand for a few minutes). The mixture will be quite thick. Place by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet at least an inch apart. Shape (circle) and flatten out. Bake for about 15 minutes. Cool and put filling on one cookie and then another cookie on top. Wrap each one individually.
FILLING: Cook the milk and flour together slowly, over a low - medium heat, and stir often. Cool. Then add the sugar and shortening and beat hard until foamy and quite thick. Finally stir in the vanilla and salt. The filling will look similar to marshmallow. Generously spoon the mixture onto a cookie, smooth out a little, and put another cookie on top.
ALTERNATE FILLING: Just beat all of the ingredients together and then spread on the cookies.
