Creamsicle Sandwich Cookies

It has been too long!




I have been one busy girl. Between working, traveling, and planning a wedding it seems I have not made time to update my blog. I am going to make a better effort to keep posting more regularly. I am going to cut to the chase and go straight to the recipe this week since I have kept you waiting long enough. After I made the Creamsicle Cookies, I knew I wanted to make another cookie with the same flavor profile. I just love the orange and vanilla combination. I came up with the idea to make a sandwich cookie since they are always fun. I brought these to a friend's birthday party and they were a hit!

Creamsicle Sandwich Cookies
recipe from Baked Perfection

Cookies

1 (18.25) package white or yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons orange zest
4 TBS fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 - 1/2 cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oils, orange juice, vanilla, and orange zest until blended. If mixture is very we,t slowly add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour until the dough comes together.

Drop teaspoons of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown. Move cookies to a cooling rack and using your spatula gently flatten your cookies.

Orange Buttercream Frosting

3 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
zest of one orange
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons orange juice

Cream sugar, butter, orange zest, and vanilla. Add 2 tablespoons of orange juice and beat until fluffy, adding more if needed.

Assembly:

Frost the flat side of the cookie with frosting. Lightly place the flat side of an unfrosted cookie on top. Press down until a bit of the frosting begins to poke out of the sides. If you want to decorate the edges, place your sprinkles/chips/etc. in a small bowl, and dip the sides of the cookie in it, rolling the cookie around to coat all sides
