From the JB Sisters' Test Kitchen - GF Moonpie

Recipe from http://allrecipes.com/
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 cup evaporated milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 cups all-purpose flour - GF BRM all purpose
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder - Nestle
• 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 1 cup confectioners' sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup marshmallow creme - Fluff
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
2. To Make Cookie Crusts: In a large mixing bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter or margarine and white sugar. Add egg, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder. Add flour mixture slowly to sugar mixture while stirring. Mix just until all ingredients are combined.
3. Drop the dough onto greased cookie sheet by rounded tablespoonfuls. Leave at least 3 inches in between each one; dough will spread as it bakes.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes, until firm when pressed with finger. Allow to cool at least one hour before filling.
5. ****see notes
To Make Marshmallow Filling: In a medium mixing bowl, blend together 1/2 cup butter or margarine, confectioners' sugar, flavored extract, and marshmallow creme. Mix until smooth. Assemble pies by spreading 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls of filling on flat side of a cookie crust, then covering filling with flat side of another cookie crust.

JBM Notes:
Did not like the marshmallow filling - too smooth, and kind of soaked into the 'crust' - will have to work on that - flavor was good - just not the right texture
***just use the fluff as is!
I added milk chocolate to the top by melting chips in a glass bowl - everything is better with chocolate!
Got about five cookies on a sheet at a time - used parchment paper (love the stuff)- batter really does spread out when baking - cooked mine the full 8 minutes
seems kind of odd to me that the 'crusts' are made with chocolate - thought the 'crusts' were yellow and the whole thing dipped in chocolate. I am sure the cocoa powder helped with the 'aftertaste' of the GF flour so I am not complaining at all.
