Springtime Filled Cake Cookies Recipe – Perfect for Easter

Springtime Filled Cookies Recipe Easter

It’s officially spring, whether or not you still have a bunch of snow in the yard like we do.  To add to the happy spirit of the season we are sharing this Springtime Filled Cake Cookies Recipe.  Even though the results are super cute and professional looking, they are easy to make, especially since you start with a store-bought cake mix for the cookies themselves.

I think this homemade frosting tastes much better than the frosting from a can, plus it is easy to make. BUT if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to make your own, feel free to substitute a can of vanilla frosting for the filling – just tint it whatever color you would like first.

You can choose to fill them with any cute pastel colors you would like – choose to make all different colors or stick with one color to match with the theme of your party – or just a favorite color.  To add more “bling” to the cookies, you can also roll the edges in sprinkles, but I personally like them just the way they are.
