Lemon Ginger Sandwich Cookies


No such luck with TWD vanilla ice cream today. I didn't get my ice cream maker into the freezer in time, didn't have enough cream, ran out of eggs, and I don't eat ice cream anyway.

I found these sandwich cookies at Costco not too long ago and even though they were really good, they still had that store-bought taste, so I decided to make some of my own that were better and homemade! I used the packaged gingerbread cookie mix from Betty Crocker and added an extra egg to make them chewier. I just love those packaged mixes! For the frosting, I did 1/3 C softened butter, 2 T milk, and enough powdered sugar to get the consistency where it just holds shape. I added some yellow food coloring and some lemon extract with some grated lemon peel and it was delish! When the cookies are completely cooled, frost one side and top it with another cookie. Store airtight if you have any left to store!
