How are you celebrating Independence Day this year? Are you having friends and family over? Are you going to see fireworks with your family and friends? No matter what you’re doing, these cookie sandwiches will pair nicely with your celebration.
With just a few ingredients and some sprinkles, these are colorful and delicious. Kids and adults will love them! I recommend making a double batch because these will go fast.
Patriotic Cake Mix Cookie Sandwiches
Makes 12 cookie sandwiches
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 cup butter, divided
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- Red & blue gel food coloring
- Patriotic sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, 1/2 cup butter, and 2 eggs.
Divide dough evenly between two bowls.
Add a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl, mixing well. Continue adding food coloring until you get your desired shade of red. Repeat this process for the blue in the other bowl.
Drop cookie dough by rounded spoonfuls onto the parchment paper.
Bake 10-11 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in powdered sugar.
Once cookies are cooked and cooled, pipe icing onto one cookie and top with another cookie.
Be sure to flip the cookies over so you have a flat surface on both sides of the icing.
Hold cookies sideways and rotate to sprinkle with fun patriotic sprinkles. Enjoy!
These cookies are colorful and perfect for celebrating the 4th of July Holiday. This year, we are actually taking a small trip away with friends for the first time. It will be to an area not to far away where we will see fireworks, spend time together and just relax. It will be so awesome to do something fun with friends. I will be making a batch of these to take with us!!
