Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   20 Sandwich cookies
Preptime   5 hr

3 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/3 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon(s) ground ginger
2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon(s) ground cloves
1 tablespoon(s) baking soda
1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
1 teaspoon(s) salt
5 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup(s) solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup(s) packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1/2 cup(s) molasses
2 ounce(s) bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1 stick(s) unsalted butter, softened
1 container(s) (8-ounce) mascarpone cheese, softened
3 cup(s) confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract

Make the cookies- In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the cocoa powder, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the softened butter with the shortening at medium speed until the mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg to the cookie batter and beat until incorporated. Beat in the molasses and then the melted bittersweet chocolate. Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, beating between additions. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts. Shape each part into a disk, then wrap each one in plastic wrap and refrigerate the cookie dough until chilled, about 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out 1 disk of dough 1/4 inch thick. Using 4- to 5-inch cookie cutters, cut the dough into shapes and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Reroll the dough scraps and cut out more cookies. Bake the cookies for about 7 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking until the tops are dry. Let the cookies cool on the pans for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
Make the filling- In a bowl, beat the butter until smooth. Beat in the mascarpone cheese until combined. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth. Refrigerate the filling until it is slightly firm, about 2 hours.
Scrape the Mascarpone Filling into a piping bag fitted with a medium tip. Turn half of the gingerbread cookies flat side up and pipe a thin layer of filling over the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies, flat side down.
