Choco-Marshmallow Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 whole egg
1/4 cup coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
24 marshmallows -- cut in half
Chocolate buttercream frosting

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Cream together shortening and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add vanilla and coffee, mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Add dry mixture to wet mixture, stirring to combine.

Drop dough by tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. Remove from oven, and working quickly, press a half of a marshmallow- cut side down, onto the top of each cookie. Place back into the oven, bake for another 3 minutes.

Remove cookies to a rack to cool completely. Once cooled, frost cookies with your choice of chocolate buttercream frosting. Top with sprinkles or nuts if desired.

Makes about 48 cookies.
