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


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.


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
