Gob Recipe

It is recipe time again.

Here is a great one for super healthy cookies.  Oh wait, I should have put that in quotes to emphasis the sarcasm.

Some people call them Moon Pies, our family has always called them Gobs.  Whatever the title, here is the super yummy recipe...

For the cookie part
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup sour milk (to make sour milk, mix 1 Tbl vinegar with 1 cup milk)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup boiling water

Cream together sugar, shortening and eggs.  Add flour mixture (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa).  Mix together sour milk, vanilla and boiling water, then add to mixture.  Bake at 350 for 5 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.

For the filling part
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
5 Tbl flour
1 1/4 cup milk

Cook together 5 Tbl flour and 1 1/4 cup milk until thick.  Cool the mixture.  Cream together 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter.  Add 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.  Add flour mixture when it is cool.

Once the cookies are cool, spread the filling on one cookie, then place another on top.  Yummy, sticky dessert :)
