Mini Funfetti Cake Mix Cookie Sandwiches



Food is the cutest when it comes in mini form.

Take these mini funfetti cookie sandwiches for example. I mean, really. Tiny cookies. Frosting. Sprinkles. CUTE!!!

I made these a while back for my daughter. She was going for her 4 year check up and I knew inoculations (we don't say "shots") were going to happen.  She took them like a champ! I was very proud so I told her that I'd bake her up something special. Sprinkles = special occasion, right?



Mini Funfetti Cake Mix Cookie Sandwiches
Cookie recipe found on The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle
Filling recipe from Confession of a Cookbook Queen


1 boxed funfetti cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon flour
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. Using a small cookie scoop (2 teaspoon size) drop equal amounts of cookie dough onto a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack so they can cool completely. 

For the filling:
1 cup shortening
5 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup water

In a large mixing bowl, beat the shortening and powdered sugar until combined. Add the vanilla extract and water and beat on high for around 2 minutes, until the mixture is light and fluffy. 

Spread or pipe the filling onto the flat side of one completely cooled cookie and then top with another cookie. 

I made about 2 dozen sandwich cookies with this recipe.

  1. So cute! And mini means I can eat practically all of them at once, right?

    1. Yes Leah. It is scientifically proven that when treats are cute and tiny you can eat more of them :)
