I received some complimentary mixes courtesy of MyBlogspark recently and decided to get creative yesterday with the cookie mix. Jon had been asking for cookies, so I made sure to get the butter out to soften as soon as I got up. One of the things I love about this mix is how simple it is. You add butter, 1 egg and 1 tsp of vanilla. That is it. If you don’t want to keep a supply of gluten-free flours, baking soda, baking powder and xanthan gum around, this is the way to go. Perfect for college students!
Then I considered sandwiching ice cream between 2 cookies, but didn’t want to soften the ice cream, refreeze, etc. I remembered I had some frosting in the pantry! Perfect!
I don’t normally use pre-made frosting, I make my own. However, there is a place for convenience, and this was the place. Best thing about these Betty Crocker frostings is the label – clearly marked “gluten-free”.
I smeared some frosting on the bottom of a cookie.
And then I sandwiched the other cookie on top.
Jon proclaimed this “awesome”, so it must be a keeper of an idea!
I only made one cookie like this, just in case Jon didn’t like them. I stuck the remaining frosting in the refrigerator. I plan on making the rest of the cookies into sandwiches later today. I do have a problem, though, there is an odd number of cookies. Guess that means I’ll have to eat the leftover cookie. I hate when that happens.
