Fairy-Fetti Cookie Bites
These cookies may look "little girlie", but I promise that people of every age will LOVE them (and they are so easy to make)! An 8 year old boy was at my house while I was making these and asked what kind of frosting wassandwiched in them. When I told him that it was cream cheese, he said that he knew he absolutely would NOT like the cookie... he ONLY likes buttercream frosting. I let him try a cookie, and then he asked me if I would make a whole tray of them for his birthday (haha).
My little girls love them for tea parties, and boys want them for birthday parties...adults even like them.
1 Pkg pkg Funfetti Cake mix
2/3 C shortening
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
4 Tb butter, softened
dash of salt
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix the cake mix, shortening, and eggs in mixer until combined.
Shape into balls... big or small. Whatever you like.
Bake for 5-8 minutes. I make them small and bake for 5 minutes.
While cookies are baking make frosting:
Cream butter and cream cheese together. Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth and creamy. Do not add milk. Add food coloring if desired.
