Christmas Sugar Cookie Sandwiches
I hesitate to admit this, but I have weird online shopping addiction. I like to shop for things, put them in the cart and then never buy them. I always start off with the best intentions and then something happens and I never follow through. Anyway on one such online shopping excursion, I came across a sandwich cookie pan from Wilton. I thought it would be so fun and versatile, so this time I put in the cart, and bought it. These cookies turned out exactly like we had hoped. Once we figured out how much cookie dough to use for each cookie, it was a piece of cake…err cookie to make.
How to Make Christmas Sugar Cookie Sandwiches
You will need:
- Best Sugar Cookie Dough
- Best Buttercream Frosting
- Americolor Super Red Food Coloring
- Americolor Leaf Green Food Coloring
- Wilton Sandwich Cookie pan
- Decorating Bags
- Decorating Tip
We used our delicious and yummy Sugar Cookie Recipe to make our Sandwich cookies. You can find the recipe and detailed instructions on how to make the dough here.
Then we colored the dough with Americolor Super Red and Americolor Leaf Green food coloring.
Press a small ball of cookie dough down into the Wilton Cookie Sandwich Pan (which you can find on Amazon). You don’t want to fill the mold all the way to the top or you will have a sharp edge around the cookie.
Bake the cookies in a 350 degree oven for 5-6 minutes. You should do a test batch with just a couple of cookies first to get the timing right. If you leave them in too long the bottom of the cookies gets slightly brown and the Sugar Cookie Sandwiches don’t look as pretty. In our oven, 5 minutes was the right amount of time.
Here are the cookies out of the oven … so pretty! Let them cool completely before you start the assembly process.
While the cookies are cooling, make up a batch of our Best Buttercream Frosting Recipe. You can find our recipe for buttercream frosting here.
Load up a pastry bag (or a plastic sandwich bag) with the buttercream frosting and pipe on a circle of buttercream frosting. You don’t want too much or the frosting will smush out of the cookie when you eat it.
Add a second cookie and your Christmas Sugar Cookie Sandwiches are ready to eat!
These cookies are so fun and festive and taste great. We love to find new ways to use sugar cookies and frosting and this one is a keeper!
Christmas Sugar Cookie Sandwiches are very tasty and so colorful and fun for Christmas. They would be a great recipe for a Cookie Exchange or a Holiday potluck.
