Strawberry Sandwich Cookies
YIELD: 10-12 SANDWICH COOKIES
1 hour 20 minutes
For the Cookie Shells:
15.25-oz box strawberry cake mix
½ cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Filling:
3 tablespoons pureed strawberries
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3-4 cups powdered sugar
In a medium mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat butter until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla extract, mixing until incorporated.
Add in strawberry cake mix and beat until well-combined. Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form chilled dough into balls about 2 inches wide. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven. Let cool on the pan for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cookie shells are cooled, prepare filling. In a medium mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together pureed strawberries and cream cheese until smooth.
Slowly mix in powdered sugar until desired consistency is achieved.
Use a piping bag or knife to spread the frosting on the bottom of half of the cookies. Place another cookie on top of the frosting to make the sandwich.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
This frosting recipe makes a good bit of frosting to create a thick layer of it between the cookies. If you prefer a thinner layer of less frosting, you can halve the amount of the ingredients for the frosting.
