If you’re looking for an easy, cute Easter cookie idea, these Easter Peekaboo Sandwich Cookies can’t be beat! You won’t believe how easy these adorable cookies are to put together!
Aren’t these Easter Peekaboo Sandwich Cookies adorable? These are the kind of cookies that you want to bring with you to Easter dinner because they’re just so fun-looking. And of course they’ll be one of the best cookies that you’ve ever tasted because they use my cake mix pudding cookie as the base!
Here’s what you’ll need to make these this Easter!
- One batch of my Cake Mix Pudding Cookies (see the recipe card below for full instructions)
- One tub of store bought icing
- Food coloring
- Mini easter-themed cookie cutters
You’ll notice that we made the icing filling in various different pastel colours for a really cute Easter look, but if you’re feeling really ambitious, you could even tint the cookie dough in a few different colours too and have contrasting Easter colours for the cookie and the filling parts of your sandwich cookies.
My youngest, Jack, who’s 4 has been really REALLY into baking lately, so I wanted to keep things a little more on the easy side this time around. There have been quite a few occasions lately where he’s woken up at 6:30am feeling inspired to bake. I always love any excuse to bake, so we’ve been in baking mode lately!
I’ve also been trying to find some good Easter-y things to do with the kids on these long, cold early spring weekends. So these Easter Peekaboo Sandwich Cookies were the perfect project!
I just love how these turned out!
Here’s the full printable recipe!
- 1 box White or golden cake mix
- 1 box Instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2 Eggs (or 2 chia eggs)
- 1/2 cup Melted salted butter
- 1 container Store bought icing
- Liquid food coloring
Preheat your oven to 350.
In a medium bowl, combine your dry cake mix and your pudding mix.
Add in the eggs and melted butter and stir to combine. As the mixture comes together into a dough, you may need to use your hands.
Roll the dough into little 1.5" balls and place them on parchment lined baking sheets about 1 inch apart.
Bake for about 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool completely before moving on to the next step.
When the cookies are cool, use your mini cookie cutters to cut out easter shapes from the middle of half of the cookies.
Decide what colors you'd like to make your icing. Divide your icing evenly among a few different bowls and use your food coloring to dye each bow of icingl a different color.
Take one cookie that does not have a shape cut out of it, and place about a teaspoon of icing on it. Place one cookie with a shape cut out of it on top.
Repeat until all your cookies have been sandwiched!
