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?

  8. A pesar de que los bolsos MK son lo que he acuñado como "lujo asequible", una persona con los presupuestos más ajustados puede tener dificultades para comprar una bolsa por cien dólares o más.(Bolsos Michael Kors Rebajas) MK tiene bolsos que van de pequeño, mediano a grande. y varían en precios.(Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos) Los bolsos más pequeños ni siquiera son bolsos ... se llaman muñequeras.(bolsas michael kors precios) O, los uso para billeteras para ciertos bolsos.(Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet) Es mucho más barato hacerlo de esa manera que tratar de tener. una billetera para cada bolso MK que poseas.(bolsos michael kors rebajas)
