  4. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch flower-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
  5. Combine all filling ingredients in small bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy. For each sandwich cookie, spread 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom of cookie. Top with second cookie; press together slightly. Repeat with remaining frosting and cookies.
