Butter: Unsalted at room temperature:1 stick
All Purpose Flour:1/2 cup
Cocoa Powder:2 tbsp
Baking Powder:3/4 tsp
Orange Zest: 1/4 orange
Cream cheese:2 tbsp
Orange zest:1/4 orange
Orange Juice: 2 tsp
Powdered white sugar: 3 tbsp or more per taste
In a bowl,mix cornmeal,flour,cocoa powder,baking powder and salt.Keep aside.
Cream butter and sugar using a mixer till light and fluffy.I used hands ie 2 forks to cream these.If you are using hands like me then you have to keep on beating the sugar and butter for 10-15 minutes or more depending on your patience.Also you can powder the sugar so that creaming with hands becomes easy.
To the butter-sugar mix,add the dry ingredients little at a time and mix well.Take your own time to knead the ingredients and finally you will be left with a dough.Put the dough in a plastic wrap,gather into a round ball and chill in the fridge for minimum 30 minutes.
In a bowl mix together all the ingredients for filling.
Take a cookie,Put a dollop of filling and close with another cookie.Do so with all other cookies.They are very tasty as such,but sandwiched,they are heavenly.
The final product....
(I have filled my cookies more than a dollop,as you can see...)
