Sugar Cookie Sandwiches FIlled With Buttercream Frosting

I found these cookies pinned on Pinterest but the site that it took me to?  I couldn’t find this recipe anywhere on it.  Argh.  But it said it came from Melissa’s Recipe Box so I’m going to credit them unless someone wants to tell me where the heck this recipe really is.

I found the sugar cookie recipe from BakingAway.  They looked delicious on her site and perfect for this cookie.

You can either use a sore bought buttercream frosting or use the recipe below (found on Martha Stewart.)

    Thank you so much. I’m new to Pinterest and this is a great help because I found the pic with no recipe.

  3. I love the bright spring colors of these cookies! Thanks so much for sharing these at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party! See you next week

  4. These are the prettiest colors! I’d love to give these a try!

  5. Just curious as to how many cookies this recipe makes? I am going to make them for my daughters class tomorrow and want to be sure I make enough! Also, would gel food colouring work?

    Very cute cookies!

    • It made about 20 sandwiches (40 cookies) unless you make them big. I used my Pampered Chef small scoop and the cookies were about 2 inches wide.

  6. Hello,
    Can you tell me how many cookies can be made with the quality above? I’ll have a total of 4 colors.
    Thank you!

    • I can’t remember how many cookies it made. I made them big, maybe 2 1/2 inches so it only made maybe 10 sandwiches. If you make them smaller then you will get more cookies.
