Sometimes we all need something sweet in a pinch.
For those times, I always keep baking mixes and cans of frosting on hand.
Yeah, yeah. It’s “cheating” if you truly like to bake, like myself. But it’s fast and easy – and still satisfies an immediate sweet tooth. Don’t hate.
My favorite types of cookies are all sandwich cookies – the lace cookies you find at bakeries, cookies with jam in between, those E.L. Fudge cookies that look like little elves, Oreo’s, etc. So I decided to make my own sandwich cookies, using already-made ingredients. Once they were done, my husband ate one and commented on how it looked like “a tiny dessert hamburger” – hence these sliders were born.
SEMI-HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE “SLIDERS”
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 package (17.5 oz.) of peanut butter cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker’s)
3 Tbsp. of vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. of water
1 large egg
1 can of chocolate frosting (I used Betty Crocker’s Rich & Creamy Dark Chocolate frosting)
WHAT TO DO:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the cookie mix, oil, egg, and water. Form a soft dough.
- Roll into 36 equally sized balls, and place around 2″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to create criss-cross patterns on the cookies.
3. Bake according to directions on package (8-10 minutes) and remove from pan to let cool.
4. Evenly spread the flat side of a cookie with the chocolate frosting, topping with another cookie. Repeat until you have 18 cookie sandwiches.
5. Dig in!
