Ingredients

Cookies

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ gingerbread cookie mix
1/2
cup butter, softened
1
egg, slightly beaten

Filling

1/2
cup butter, softened
2
cups powdered sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
1/2
cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, beat cookie ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds or until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Mix with hands until soft dough forms.
  • 2 On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. (If dough is too sticky to roll out, cover and refrigerate 15 minutes.) Cut with floured 1 3/4-inch fluted cookie cutter. On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 2 inches apart.
  • 3 Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  • 4 In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter, the powdered sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. For each sandwich cookie, spread slightly less than 1 tablespoon filling on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press together. Sprinkle crystallized ginger on edges of filling.
