4th of July inspired sweet treats. Easy to make with kids and for a crowd.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. In a larger bowl (we used an automatic mixer bowl), mix together butter and sugar until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla and continue to mix. Slowly, add dry ingredients.
- On an ungreased cookie pan, spoon dough into ping pong ball-sized balls (we use a cookie scoop). Using the back of a spoon, gently flatten out each ball (not all the way). Add sprinkles, if desired.
Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool for 1 minute and then cool completely on cookie rack.
For the icing: In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter. Then, take a generous spoonful and spread on one cookie. Top with another cookie (should look like a sandwich).
Serve immediately, or store in air-tight container.
