Funfetti Cookie Sandwiches

/

My goal for this year was to make as many cookies unlike ones I have previously made before. I didn't think this would be all that difficult of a task since gazillions of cookie recipes are out there.

When I found these, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show off their pretty holiday colors.

Ingredients:
for the cookies:
    • 1 box yellow cake mix 
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 tbsp. oil
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
    • sprinkles 
    for the filling:
    • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In the box of your stand mixer, combine cake mix, butter, oil, eggs and vanilla until dough has formed.
3. Turn out dough onto a piece of wax paper and shape into a log.
4. Pour sprinkles on a shallow plate. Roll the dough log through the sprinkles until all sides are coated.
5. Slice 1/2 inch thick pieces from the log and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until just golden brown on the bottoms. Allow to cool completely before filling.
6. Make the filling by beating the butter in the bowl of your stand mixer on medium high speed until creamy. Add in the marshmallow fluff and beat until combined.
7. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, then vanilla and heavy whipping cream until a thick frosting forms.
8. Flip half of the cookies over and spread frosting on each. Top with the remaining cookies.
