Day 9: Snickerdoodle Sandwiches

We love raisins. so this had to be made! This is also a good example of how you can buy store bought cookie dough and jazz it up!

Snickerdoodle Sandwiches


3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 16-1/2-ounce package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons snipped golden raisins or raisins


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine sugar and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Shape cookie dough into 3/4- to 1-inch balls; roll balls in cinnamon-sugar to coat. Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

2. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes or just until edges are firm. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.

3. Meanwhile, for filling: In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, honey, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Beat with a wire whisk until smooth. If desired, stir in raisins.

4. Spread filling generously on the bottoms of half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, flat sides down, pressing lightly together. Makes about 24 sandwich cookies.
