Shell cookies with chocolate filling

Shell cookie with chocolate filling

For the dough you will need:
225 g (1-3/4 cup) all purpose flour
1 large egg
120g (1 stick) butter, softened
60g (1/2 cup) confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

For the filling:
2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cocoa powder
60g (1/2 cup) confectioners sugar
1 egg yolk
60g (1/2 stick) butter

For decoration:
dark chocolate

First, start preparing the filling.

 In a small saucepan. mix the milk, flour, confectioners sugar and cocoa powder.

 Cook it on medium heat, constantly stirring until it thickens. Remove from heat, mix in the egg yolk and let it cool completely before the next step. (Start making the cookies and finish the filling when the cookies are cooling.)

 When your chocolate mixture cooled down beat the butter until fluffy and add to the chocolate mixture. 

Beat the cream until well mixed and fluffy.

You can simply use a spoon to fill your cookies, but I prefer to fill a plastic bag, cut the corner and use it to fill the cookies.

Now, let's see the cookies:

 Mix all ingredients for the dough and knead it util everything is well incorporated. 

Take small pieces of the dough to fill your molds with a thin layer of dough. 

  You need only a thin layer, as the dough will spread a little and you want to put filling inside.
 Bake at 375F for 8-10 minutes or until it has a light brown color. 

 Let them cool enough so you can safely touch the mold and turn the molds upside down to remove the cookies. 

 Let the cookies cool completely before filling them.

 Decorate half of the cookies. Use melted chocolate to draw some lines in the cookies.

  With a toothpick you can pull the lines to follow the shape of the shell. Put the cookies in your freezer for a couple of minutes so the chocolate harden.

 Fill half of your cookies with the chocolate filling.

Put the chocolate decorated halves on top of each filled cookie. 

Store in refrigerator until served. Enjoy!
