what i made for monday - surpise cookies

I actually made these a couple weeks ago...according to Doug's coworkers these made the top three list of things I've made for them.  So...I'll let that speak for itself.  Make these...they're great! 

Surprise Cookies
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally or three mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
Add egg, milk, and vanilla. 
Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.

Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto un-greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.

Remove from oven, and place marshmallows, in the center of each cookie, pressing down. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begin to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Place cookies on cooling rack and allow to cool completely before next step.

Using about a 1 tablespoon of frosting cover each marshmallow.  Once frosting is set, store in a cool place for 3-5 days.
