Baby Sprinkles are trending among moms-to-be. They may be so new that you haven’t heard of them just yet. These parties are for moms who are having a second, third or later child. Many times, parents have a different gender the second time around and new items are needed for their latest bundle of joy. Plus – isn’t every baby worth celebrating? I certainly think so!
This smaller version of a baby shower typically includes close friends and family and isn’t as elaborate as the first time around. It may include a few games, smaller gift items, and a few snackable foods, like the one I’m sharing with you today!
These Strawberry Mini Sugar Cookie Sandwiches are dee-licious and a cute treat for a Baby Sprinkle. Read on to grab the recipe below!
Strawberry Mini Sugar Cookies
- 1 (17.5 oz) package of sugar cookie mix
- 5 tablespoons butter (softened)
- 1 egg white
- 5 tablespoons strawberry daiquiri mix, divided
- Gel food coloring (optional)
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Begin by beating the sugar cookie mix, butter, egg white and 3 tablespoons strawberry daiquiri mix (sans the alcohol) on low until a dough is formed.
Next, place dough in small dollops on a baking sheet. I used a tablespoon measure to stay consistent with size. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
After cooling for a few minutes on the baking sheet, transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. While waiting, combine the powdered sugar and remaining 2 tablespoons of strawberry daiquiri mix and whisk until blended. If you find the filling to be too dry, add another teaspoon of strawberry mix until the filling has a thick consistency.
Once the cookies have cooled, spoon a sizeable amount (pictured below) onto the bottom end of one sugar cookie. Next, place the other cookie on top to create a sandwich. Press down slightly until the filling reaches the edges of the cookies.
If you don’t want the filling oozing down your cookies, wait until they are completely cool. I personally like that look, so I didn’t wait with my version. 🙂
Lastly, add sprinkles to your workspace and roll the sides of the cookies in the sprinkles, or you can place some on top of the cookies.
I chose to make half of my sugar cookie batter and filling with blue food coloring, that way you can see different versions. Both still have a strawberry flavor, but I added 3-4 drops of gel food coloring to create light blue cookies. This is great for baby sprinkles where the parents are waiting to find out the gender, or it would be great for a gender reveal party too! I added 2 drops of blue food coloring to the strawberry filling to stay consistent.
