Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies with Frosting Filling

I love making sandwich cookies. So making these Funfetti Cake Mix cookies with a frosting filling was a no brainer. I love cake mix cookies, and make them in different ways every chance I get. I have made oatmeal cake mix cookies,  cake mix carrot cake cookies as well as  peanut butter cake mix cookies. Using funfetti cake batter in order to make these sandwich cookies is a delicious and easy way to make cookies.

Use these funfetti sandwich cookies as a simple dessert, make them for a picnic or party, or throw them together at the last minute for a bake sale( you know when the kids forget they need it until an hour before it is time to deliver)

Just place the cookies in a freezer safe bag and they will be good for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to eat them, just let them thaw at room temperature for about an hour or so.
