For the Chocolate Wafer Cookie
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For the Raspberry Filling
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
For the Cookies:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and have ready a sheet pan lined with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat melt together butter and chocolate, stirring often. Remove from the heat as soon as chocolate has melted and set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt. Set aside until ready to use.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together sugar and egg until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and mix to combine. With the stand mixer on low, slowly drizzle in the butter and chocolate mixture. Add in the dry ingredients and mix on low until combined.

  5. Roll about a tablespoon of batter in the palm of your hand and press slightly to flatten. Roll in the sanding sugar and bake 10-12 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.

For the Raspberry Filling:
  1. Add the butter, sugar, jam, extract and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Begin with the mixing on low, and after about 30 seconds increase the speed to medium-high speed and mix until well blended. Alternatively, use a medium-sized mixing bowl and a handheld mixer.
  2. Once the cookies are cooled, spread on a thin layer of icing across the bottom of a wafer and top it with another wafer. Repeat until all of the cookies have been assembled.
