How to make it
- To make the cookies:
- In a bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, spice, baking powder, and salt.
- In a cup, stir together molasses, water, and baking soda.
- In a large bowl, with mixer on medium, beat butter and sugars until fluffy.
- Beat in egg until blended.
- With mixer on low, alternately beat in flour mixture and molasses mixture until dough forms.
- Divide dough in half; place each half between sheets of waxed paper.
- Roll out to 1/8-inch thickness.
- Stack on baking sheet; freeze 30 minutes, until firm.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line cookie sheets with parchment.
- Working with 1 portion of dough at a time, peel away 1 sheet of the waxed paper to completely release from dough; pat paper back into place.
- Turn dough over; peel off second sheet and discard.
- Using 3-inch Halloween-shaped cutters, cut out 20 cookies. Transfer cookies from waxed paper to prepared cookie sheets with a small spatula, spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart. (For bat, use a skewer to cut out eyes; for jack-o'-lantern, use a small knife.)
- Reroll scraps; freeze.
- Cut out the remaining 20 bottom cookies.
- Bake each sheet 8 minutes.
- Cool on sheet 2 minutes; remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
- To make the filling:
- Beat both ingredients until smooth.
- Spread a heaping tablespoon of filling on each of bottom cookies; place top cookies over filling; gently sandwich together.
- Decorate with icing.
