These past couple weeks have been birthday filled! I have baked so many things, but yet I didn’t load them. Maybe I’ll save them for a rainy day. Any-who… Here is my newest birthday creation.
Soft Sandwich Cookies
I love these cookies. Usually I like to make them with red velvet cake mix and fudgy brownie mix combined. This maybe just one of the simplest, easiest recipes I’ll ever put on here.
1 Box dark chocolate cake mix, or any other cake mix you’d like (you do not need whatever is called for on the box of this cake mix.
1/2 Cup butter (1 stick), softened to room temperature
Mix ingredients until combined.
Using a 1/2 tablespoon, roll batter into balls and place on baking sheet.
I used different cookie sheets. One is my brand new one I got for Christmas! =) The other is rather old, so to make sure my cookies come up easy, I used parchment paper. I love that stuff. Really. Place them a couple inches apart.
Do you see this other gift? My cooling racks are stackable!
3 tbs milk
2 tbs butter, softened
2-3 cups confectioners sugar
Vanilla flavoring to my likening
Place milk and butter in bowl.
I’ll be honest. I don’t have milk, but I do have coffee creamer (the liquid kind) and whipping cream. I added these and it turned out just amazing! Just think! There are so many creamer flavors. You can make so many different flavors of frosting!!
Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Blend well with a mixer. Remember, you want the frosting to be nice and stiff because it will be sandwiched between two cookies.
