Ingredients

Cake

Frosting

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk

Steps

    Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Line bottoms of three 8- or 9-inch round cake pans with parchment paper; grease with butter or cooking spray.

    Shape 8 rounded teaspoons of dough into balls, and roll in the cinnamon sugar included with the cookie mix. Place on cookie sheet; bake 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are set. Cool completely.

    Meanwhile, divide remaining dough among cake pans; spread to cover bottoms of pans. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool completely.

    Place 1 cookie layer on cake stand or large plate. Cover with one-third of the frosting. Top with another cookie layer, another one-third of the frosting, and then the final cookie layer. Place remaining frosting in decorating bag with tip; pipe on top. Decorate with the 8 mini cookies.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use either 8- or 9-inch cake pans for this recipe. Using 8-inch pans will result in a taller cake, while using 9-inch pans will result in a wider cake.
  • tip 2
    If you don't have 3 cake pans, you can bake the layers in shifts. Be sure to grease and line with parchment before baking each layer.
