  • Summary

    [Photograph: Vicky Wasik] With crisp and crunchy vanilla wafers sandwiching a dark-chocolate cream filling, these shortbread cookies taste as magical as if they'd been prepared by an elf. Of course, they can be made with whatever cookie cutters you have on hand, but when it comes to whipping up a batch of copycat E.L. Fudge, owl fudge cookies sound just about right.

    Ingredients

    • For the Cookies:
    • 3 1/2 ounces sugar (about 1/2 cup; 100g)
    • 1/4 teaspoon (1g) Diamond Crystal kosher salt; for table salt, use about half as much by volume or use the same weight
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 4 ounces unsalted butter (about 8 tablespoons; 115g), pliable but cool
    • 1 ounce milk (about 2 tablespoons; 30g), any percentage will do
    • 1/2 ounce vanilla extract (1 tablespoon; 15g)
    • 7 3/4 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 3/4 cups, spooned; 220g), plus more for dusting
    • For the Filling:
    • 4 ounces powdered sugar (about 1 cup, spooned; 110g)
    • 1 ounce Dutch-process cocoa powder (about 1/4 cup, spooned; 30g), such as Cacao Barry Extra Brute
    • 3 ounces unsalted butter (about 6 tablespoons; 85g), brought to about 72°F (22°C)
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/8 teaspoon (0.5g) Diamond Crystal kosher salt; for table salt, use about half as much by volume or use the same weight
