Sift flour and baking soda together. Using electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter, sugar and extract in medium bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and water and beat until blended. Add melted chocolate and mix till blended. Add flour and blend. Scoop rounded teaspoons of batter 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.

When cookies are completely cool, turn half of them upside down and spread rounded teaspoonful of filling on each bottom half. Top with remaining cookies. Allow to set for 2-3 hours or in fridge for 1 hour. Store in airtight container in freezer up to 2 weeks.
