For the dark chocolate cookies
For the creme filling:
To make the dark chocolate cookies:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed, until smooth (about 1 minute).
  3. Stir in the vanilla and salt.
  4. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, and mix in the egg.
  5. Add the dark cocoa powder, and mix on low speed to combine.
  6. Add the flour, a little at a time, until the dough forms a ball and pulls cleanly away from the sides of the bowl (you might not need all the flour*).
  7. Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, to a thickness of 1/4-inch (rolling pin rings will help you to get an even thickness).
  8. Use a 2-inch diameter fluted round cutter to cut shapes, place on the prepared baking sheets, and bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until crisp around the edges and set in the centers.
  9. Cool completely, and sandwich with creme filling.
To make the creme filling:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, and salt together until smooth.

Recipe Notes

*If the dough seems sticky, add more flour. If it's too crumbly, it can be moistened back up with a few tablespoons of cream.
