• Dark Side of the Moon Pies

by Ginny McCormack September 15, 2015

This homemade version of a childhood classic could not be easier! Wrap these up to pack in lunchboxes or pile them high on your prettiest platter and be the envy of the potluck. Best served with an ice cold Coca-Cola (in a glass bottle, of course!) 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, softened
1 egg
1 cup evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 cup marshmallow creme

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter and sugar. Add the egg, evaporated milk and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the flour mixture slowly to the sugar mixture while stirring. Mix just until ingredients are incorporated.

Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the greased cookie sheet. Allow 2-3 inches between them for spreading. Bake 6-8 minutes. Cool for 1 hour before filling.

In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar, vanilla and marshmallow creme until smooth.
Assemble the moon pies by placing 1-2 tablespoons of the filling between the flat sides of two cookies.

Serves 24
