I LOVE Martha Stewart and this is one of her famous cookie recipes for the holidays
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs)
  Cocoa powder 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Unsalted butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), softened (1 stick)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg 1 Large
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Pure vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Marshmallows 12 Large, cut in half horizontally
  Chocolate frosting 1
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined. Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.
3. Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
4. Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begins to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
5. Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.
