Day 23: Snickerdoodle Sandwiches

This last week if you haven't noticed is all about the recipes that we tried in the past challenges and are craving them! This is the ONLY time of year i make cookies. I refuse to do it the rest of the year! I'll bake something else, but not cookies.

So here is a quick recipe that helps those not so savvy in the kitchen dress up some store bought sugar cookie dough!

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.
