  • 1/2¬†Cup¬†Sour Cream

  • 2¬†Large Eggs

  • 1 1/2¬†Teaspoons¬†Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1/2¬†Teaspoon¬†Vanilla Extract

  • 1¬†Tablespoon¬†Red Food Colorin

  • 2 1/4¬†Cups¬†All Purpose Flour

  • 1¬†Cup¬†Sugar

  • 1/4¬†Cup¬†Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

  • 2¬†Teaspoons¬†Baking Powder

  • 1/4¬†Teaspoons¬†Baking Soda

  • 1/2¬†Teaspoons¬†Salt



  • Filling:

  • 3¬†Tablespoons¬†Unsalted Butter¬†at Room Temperature

  • 2 1/2¬†Cups¬†Powdered Sugar¬†Sifted

  • 1¬†Teaspoon¬†Vanilla Extract



  • Make the cookies:¬†Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
  • Combine the semisweet and milk chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 50 percent power until melted, about 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
  • ¬†In the bowl of a stand-up mixer mix the melted butter, sour cream, eggs, vinegar, vanilla and food coloring just until combined.
  • ¬†In another bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in four equal batches, mixing each batch completely before adding the next. Stir in the melted chocolate.]


  • Scoop batter, using a medium cookie scoop (I leveled the scoop off),¬† onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the cookies spring back when lightly pressed, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling: ¬†Beat the cream cheese and butter with a mixer until smooth. Beat in the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Sandwich a heaping tablespoonful of filling between 2 cookies; repeat with the remaining cookies and filling. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.

Note: These obviously need to be stored in the fridge because of the cream cheese.  I thought they tasted significantly better as they came to room temp.
