Strawberry Sandwich Cookies


While your cookies cool, make your strawberry cream cheese frosting. You'll be using the powder of freeze dried strawberries for extra fruity flavor. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment — or in a large mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer — beat the cream cheese until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the butter and mix for another 1 minute or until fully combined.

Turn off mixer and add salt, powdered sugar, and extracts to bowl. Mix for another 2-3 minutes. Add lemon juice if needed to cut sweetness.

Add finely ground freeze dried strawberries to mixing bowl and mix until well-combined.

Place frosting into piping bag fitted with a tip of your choice.

Once you’ve made your filling, cookies and frosting, match your cookies in pairs based on their size and set them out on a clear space in front of you.

On the flat side of half of all of your cookies, pipe a thick circle of strawberry cream cheese frosting that reaches the edge of the cookie.

Depending on the size of your cookies, place 1-3 teaspoons of your roasted strawberry in the middle.

Put matching cookie on top to form the sandwich, with the filling and frosting inside.

Eat & enjoy!
