Mermaid Cream Cookies

 So, funfetti cake, I love you, I really do. But you disappointed me today. I guess I'm not being fair. I abused you a little bit. I didn't mix you with the ingredients I was supposed to listed the box. I didn't make you into a cake, I made you into cookies, I dyed you green.  I tried to change you. I'm sorry. 
Were you delicious? Yes. But very sweet. And to be honest, I like you in your original form the best.

Same with my cream cheese icing. Why blue? It just somehow seemed magical at the time. I think I was in a child-like mood (which isn't too much out of the ordinary). I love colorful things. This sure "took the cake". I was told these are good by my father, but my husband said when asked "are these as good as the red velvet cream cookies?', responded "no, no no no no no". So there you have it folks.
Also, I burned a baking sheet full of these, so I'd say it was a down-right disaster. Kids might be very impressed by these though!

Mermaid Cream Cookies

All you need is:
1 Box funfetti cake mix
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 Eggs
Extra Sprinkles
Green Food Coloring (about 15 drops)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix ingredients until combined.
Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter onto baking sheet about two inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Cream Cheese Filling

1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature

1 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened to room temperature

1 1lb. Box of confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp Vanilla
Blue food coloring (about 15 drops)
Blue sprinkles for the icing

In a mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and vanilla. Add Food coloring.
Gradually add sugar and mix until smooth.
Once cookies have cooled, place large amount of filling inside of first cookie, and press second cookie together using your palms until icing reaches edges.
Dust icing on cookie with sprinkles.
