41% shortening, 80% sugar, 20% eggs, 2% vanilla extract, 47% sour milk, 1.8% baking soda, 47% hot water, 17% cocoa powder, 1.2% salt Filling = 31% shortening, 48% confectioner’s sugar, 3% AP flour, 6% milk, 1.8% vanilla extract, 8% egg whites


* 1/4 cup shortening 50g

* 1/2 cup white sugar 100g

* 1/2 eggs 25g

* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3ml

* 1/4 cup sour milk 60ml

* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2g

* 1/4 cup hot water 60ml

* 1 cup all-purpose flour 125g

* 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 20g

* 1/4 teaspoon salt 2g *

* 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons shortening 75g

* 1 cup confectioners’ sugar 12-g

* 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 8g

* 1 tablespoon milk 15ml

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 6ml

* 1/2 egg whites, beaten 20g


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. 2. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup of shortening and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla and sour milk. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Stir together the baking soda and hot water then mix them into the batter last. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. 3. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm but not overbaked. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. 4. To make the filling: In a medium bowl, cream together the 1 1/2 cups shortening with the confectioners’ sugar and 1/4 cup of flour until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the milk and vanilla until well mixed, then fold in the egg whites. Sandwich at least 1 tablespoon of filling between the flat sides of two cookies.

The pies were a bit oily, but had a rich chocolate taste. Other than that, it was a bit too heavy. I used coconut milk instead of sour milk, and didn’t make the filling because raw egg white was needed. Ratio of tablespoon of vinegar to milk = 1:1Maybe cut down on sugar..because people say it’s too sweet
