I recently just got back from India and I’ll be honest the jetlag is kicking my ass. Problem is, I promised to deliver some cute Spring themed cookies to a little tea party the week right after. Which…why? Like do I hate myself? I’m so tired.
But I am a woman of my word so I was looking for the easiest way to deliver on my promise without putting in a lot of effort on that promise *don’t judge*.
And from that these Easter sandwich cookies were born. They are so easy. But they are still super tasty. So ya know…win win.

Easter Sandwich Cookie Recipe
Why this Easter Sandwich Cookie Recipe is the best
Feeling lazy? Pillsbury has got you covered. Bad at baking? Pillsbury is here to give you some help. Forgot you have to bring dessert to an Easter garden party? Pillsbury.
Not only that but Pillsbury has these cookies for almost every seasonal occasion. If you’re straight up sick of baking for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and everything in between, they’re there to help you out.
Am I the only one who remembers baking these in middle school and high school, burning half of them and constantly burning my mouth on them?
Ahhh, the good ol’ days.
Anywho, I decided to upgrade these cookies a bit by making them sandwiches and filled with some delicious cream cheese frosting.
Because upgrades make me feel less bad about being a lazy baker fulfilling half ass promises.
You’re going to love them because as I hope I’ve made clear, they’re easy and full of nostalgic sweetness.
If you want the same sprinkle mix as I used, get them here. I got mine from King Soopers but depending on where you live, Amazon always has got you covered.
Pillsbury Easter Sandwich Cookies
- 1 box Easter Bunny Pillsbury Pressed Cookies (24 cookies)
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 1 drop pink food coloring
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Festive Easter Sprinkles
- Bake your cookies based on the instructions on the box.
- Add your whipping cream, cream cheese, and food coloring to a bowl. Whip it well with your hand mixer until smooth. Add in your powdered sugar and beat again until smooth and fluffy.
- Transfer your cream cheese frosting to a piping bag. Pipe the frosting onto 12 of your cookies.
- Put enough frosting on each so that when you but the other cookies on, the frosting will barely poke out the sides.
- Make sandwiches with the non-frosted cookies.
- Put your festive sprinkles on a plate. Gently roll your sandwich cookies through the sprinkles so that your frosting has a pretty layer of sprinkles.
- Enjoy! Store any extras in an airtight container.
The most important note I have for you guys is this: do NOT overbake these. I mean it also says that on the box, but who reads instructions? (You. You should read instructions if you want edible baked goods).
For a sweet trip down nostalgia lane, these Pillsbury Easter cookies are where it’s at. No one will know you were just too lazy to make something from scratch, they’ll just revel in their childhood joys of eating wayyy too many of these cookies around the holidays.
Ps I would like to note that these WOULD HAVE been a hit at the little First Day of Spring garden party if it hadn’t been canceled. You know spring in Colorado….we had a foot of snow. So you know, not a fun way to have a garden party.
But they were still delicious, party or no party.
