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 stick butter, softened
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.
