One of the things that I like to share with people who buy the Carolina Girl Cooks tea cookies at markets and other events, is that they have multiple uses. Sure, the tea cookies are always meant to be enjoyed alone, but why not put the tea cookies to work a few different ways?! Such as using the Carolina Girl Cooks tea cookies in a delicate sweet treat. In a Lemon Lavender Tea Cookie Sandwiches recipe.
Making little lavender tea cookie sandwiches using a flavored icing is one of my favorite easy dessert ideas if I’m having people over. I can make them ahead of time and serve them in fun bowls. I have this thing for vintage milk glass, so I love filling up a big bowl of these delicate little cookie sandwiches for a party. They’re so fun and girly!
You can certainly use any flavor icing you like, but lemon is a lovely and light flavor for summer and a great compliment for these tea cookie sandwiches. I won’t lie, chocolate is crazy delicious, too. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s chocolate…
It’s super easy to make your own icing, but of course you can purchase ready-made lemon icing if you know of a local baker that makes a good one to compliment the cookie sandwiches. The next time you have your gal pals over for dinner, drinks or book club, serve these little tea cookie sandwiches up. They’re sure to be a hit!
Lemon Lavender Tea Cookie SandwichesSERVES serves 8 (2 sandwiches each) PrintDownload
- 2 tins or 3 topper packs of the lavender tea cookies
- 1 cup of lemon icing
- Lemon Buttercream Icing:
- 1 stick of room temperature butter
- 4 cups of confectioners sugar
- 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon zest
- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, 2 cups of sugar, lemon juice and zest together until it's all combined. Add in one cup of the remaining sugar at a time until it's thick, but you can still spread it.
- You can pipe the icing through a decorative icing tip or fill up a plastic baggie with icing. Make sure the icing goes to one bottom corner of the bag, twist and snip the end.
- Pipe the icing on one side of a cookie and top with another. Repeat until all the cookies have been used.
- If you have loads of icing left over (and you probably will) you can freeze it for another use.
