Butter cream frosting as filling.
This is a VERY sweet butter cream frosting recipe. It is also my favorite! But any frosting will work well as a filling for these yummy cookies. Also, last week's marshmallow filling would be awesome in these.
In the work bowl of a stand mixer, combine a one pound bag or box of confectioners sugar and 1/2 cup (one stick of butter). Using the paddle attachment, blend until crumbly, about one minute. Add 4 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and 2 teaspoons of vanilla and beat until creamy, about 3 minutes more.
Use a knife or a spatula to spread on a cookie, and top with another one. Or leave them open face, and eat it with a fork, like a slice of cake.
I'll be back tomorrow with a decoarated version for a holiday party.
