1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add melted chocolate and vanilla; beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half; wrap in waxed paper, and chill 1 hour.

Roll half of dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; keep remaining dough chilled until ready to use. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch fluted or round cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks.

Repeat procedure with remaining dough, cutting out center of each cookie with a 1/2- inch round cookie cutter before baking.

Prepare filling. Spread solid cookies evenly with filling. Top with remaining cookies to make sandwiches, pressing down slightly to fill cut-outs on tops of cookies.
