1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
2 to 3 teaspoons milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Continue beating until well mixed.

Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar to 1 1/2-inch circle. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar and caramel topping in small bowl; stir in enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

To assemble sandwich cookies, spread about 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom-side of 1 cookie; top with another cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.

Recipe Tip

Use caramel fudge ice cream topping for a flavor variation.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

The cookie itself is good,but the filling

great. I would make just the cookie again and skip the filling.
