Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

There is this catering company by my house that sells cookies up front. Last time I was there all they had were Chocolate Marshmallow cookies. I'd never had them before so I didn't know what to expect but they were soooo good. I remembered seeing them before in my Taste Of Homes - Best Loved Cookies & Bars cook book so I got really excited because I knew that that way I'd be able to replicate them. I didn't change the recipe at all and I'm glad I didn't. Its perfect as written. Mine turned out really good, but not exactly the same. I used Hershey's Dark Cocoa so they were darker than the catering company's and also my frosting wasn't as smooth. But whatever, they tasted dang good and that's all that matters!!

Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways
1/2 cup Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1-3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
8 marshmallows, halved
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 to 6 tablespoons half & half (or milk)

Cream Crisco, and sugar till light and fluffy. Beat in milk, egg, vanilla, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add flour and cocoa and mix well. Roll mixture into 16 balls and place the dough balls on buttered cookie sheet. Bake 6 minutes at 350. Press a marshmallow half, cut side down, onto each cookie; Bake 2 minutes longer. Remove cookies to cool. For the frosting; In small bowl, beat the butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, and salt till smooth. Add enough half and half to achieve spreading consistency. Frost the cookies. Makes 16 cookies!!
