Shortbread sandwich cookies

Aren't these shortbread sandwich cookies adorable? They are very simple, I used the shorbread cookie recipe from Fresh Home magazine minus the rosemary. The frosting is a cream cheese frosting with strawberry jam added to give it the pink tint. The frosting was a bit too sweet so next time I make these I may just add some food coloring for the color. Be sure to cut the cookies a bit thinner (since two cookies will be sandwiched together). They also only need to be in the oven for 9-10 minutes, since they are thinner.

You can expect to find these on the dessert table that I am designing in the next couple weeks!

Did you bake anything this weekend? Comment and share!!

  1. We had an insane foodie weekend. It was overdue and I think we definitely made up for it. I have a husband who likes to be in the kitchen, too, so I get help! We had chile-garlic chicken and bulgur pilaf, buttermilk pancakes, brick-oven pizza with edamame, homemade tuna noodle casserole with bechamel sauce, crepes with fresh fruit, citrus steak, spinach and gruyere strata, and a delicious matzo-toffee treat by Martha Stewart that reminds me of summer at the beach! Can't wait! Thanks for sharing the shortbread; can't wait to see the dessert table!

  6. It was a busy cooking weekend since we had dinner night ever night this weekend. Friday i make a pear yogurt cake, Saturday i made fresh tofu spring rolls, and Sunday night I made sukiyaki and a Swedish birthday cake. All things i hope to post in the next week about. I am a huge Asian food person, so you will see a lot of that on my blog. But something i have not been able to make is Shortbread. I have no idea but every time I try it is a disaster. I will have to try this recipe out and let you know how it goes.

  7. It's things like this that make me wish I had the patience to roll out cookies and churn out dozens of adorable creations. But I know my limitations and stick to drop cookies.
    I had intended to bake some peanut butter dog biscuits but time got away from me so probably later this week.
