How to make Funfetti Sandwich Cookies
Gather the ingredients needed and weigh and measure. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray or use Parchment Paper.
In a large bowl with a hand mixer or use astand mixer cream together softened room temperature butter and sugar on medium speed until combined. Then cream mixture on a higher speed for 2-3 minutes making sure to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
Butter mixture will turn a very light yellow color the more it creams. Air pockets will be trapped in the mixture which will make these cookies so light and delicious.
Add Egg and vanilla extract and continue to cream until everything is throughly combined. Drizzle vegetable oil in a little at a time followed by confectioners sugar.
Scrape down sides of bowl multiple times and cream for another 2-3 minutes.
In a separate bowl combine all purpose flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Add flour mixture a little at a time until it's all added.
Hand stir rainbow sprinkles into cookie dough for a fun and tasty surprise.
Scoop the cookie dough using a small cookie scoop and tip the top of each cookie dough into remaining sprinkles. Place cookie dough on prepared sheet pans with a parchment paper 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated oven of 350 degrees.
Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for a minute before moving to cooling racks or wire racks to cool completely.
Cookie Sandwich Filling
I love this Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe. It's really quick and easy to make.
In a large bowl or stand mixer combine cream cheese and butter and mix together. It's important to scape down sides of bowl and mixture is creaming together so that everything is whipped nicely.
Add powdered sugar and mix fully. The Frosting will be very thick. To thin frosting add vanilla extract and slowly add milk a little at a time. I use about 1 tablespoon milk for a perfect thick cheesecake filling.
Place frosting into a piping bag with star tip or just snip the corner of the bag and pipe directly onto cookies. Top each frosted cookie with an additional cookie to make a sandwich.
Baking Pro Tips
Baking Sheets. Use Parchment Paper or spray with cooking spray so cookies don't stick on baking sheets.
Piping Bags. I find it quick and easy to use a piping bag with the corner snipped off for the frosting. It's easy to pipe onto cookies for a fun pattern.
Room Temperature Ingredients. It may sound silly but it really does matter. Using softened Butter and a room temperature egg will make this recipe even better!
Dough. There is no need to chill the dough for this recipe. The dough texture is creamed and soft and light. It will make perfectly soft sugar cookies.
Doneness. Cookies are done baking with the edges are set and the center is baked. They shouldn't have turned light golden brown yet either. I bake mine for exactly 7 minutes. But every oven heats a little differently so watch them and make a note for yourself.
Storage and Freezing
Funfetti Cookie Sandwiches are always best fresh. But these Frosting Sandwich Cookies can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Freeze funfetti cookie recipe for up to 3 months when properly sealed.
