Strawberry and Creme Cookie Sandwiches

By Christy

This week our topic was to bake something "pink", hence the inspiration to make these Strawberry Cookies and Creme Cookie Sandwiches. The cookies, not including the icing, are literally only 4 ingredients. I thought the cookies were SUPER good plain. They were extremely moist, had the perfect hint of strawberry, and the white chocolate, chocolate chips were the perfect touch! I did decide to take these cookies to the next step and I made cookie sandwiches with cream cheese frosting. In my opinion EVERYthing is better with icing on it! lol These cookies are like nothing I have ever had and are quite unique and different. I will definitely be making these again!

Cookie Ingredients:
Duncan Hines Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix (or any other strawberry cake mix)
2 Eggs
3/4 cup Crisco
1 cup white chocolate chips

4 oz softened cream cheese
4 tablespoons softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. To make the cookies mix the cake mix, eggs, and crisco. The mix will be very thick but they bake up perfectly. Once batter is mixed, add the chocolate chips. Bake for 10 minutes or until they show signs of browning around the edges.

Let cookies cool.

While cookies are cooling make the frosting. Using a mixer, whip the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar until the icing is smooth. Simply put about 1 to 2 tsp on a the bottom side of the cookie and sandwich it with the bottom of another cookie to make a cookie sandwich.
