Double Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

1 3/4 cups granulated white sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup unsweetened Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 container frosting of your choice


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar till creamy. Add the vanilla, eggs and cocoa powder beating till smooth. In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add one cup at a time to the mixture and mix till the cookie dough is stiff. Divide the dough in half and form into a disk. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for one hour. Roll out the dough till it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut out your desired shapes and bake for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Frost the cookie with the frosting of your choice and place another cookie on top to form a sandwich. Roll the edges in sprinkles. Store in an airtight container till you are ready to eat!
