Sugar Cookie Sandwiches

I saw this idea on Pinterest and had to try it.  I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and added food color.  Frosting in between can be cream cheese frosting or buttercream (a flavored buttercream would be good).  Cute!

                       

Sugar Cookie Dough:
2 cups flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tbl butter, softened
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl milk
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375°.  Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.  Cream butter, shortening, and sugar with electric mixer.  Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Divide dough into thirds.  Add a different food coloring to each, mix in thoroughly.  With cookie scoop (I used my very smallest), drop dough onto Silpat or sprayed cookie sheet.  Dipping bottom of cup in sugar, flatten each cookie dough ball a little.  Bake for 6 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes then transfer to cooling rack.  Cool completely.  Put two cookies together with Cream Cheese Frosting (below) or Buttercream Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
5 Tbl butter, softened
8 oz cold cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted after measured

With an electric mixer, beat butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until combined. Gradually add powdered sugar until desired sweetness and consistency.
