These are a crowd favorite! A cookie is good but a cookie sandwich is even better! I prepare these whenever I know a lot of women and/or girls will be around as they have a tendency to flock to the bright red color of these Devilishly tasty cookies. You can prepare the cookies and frosting, then let the kids help build the sandwiches.

Ingredients (16)

Make the Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cream the margarine and sugar with a whisk.  Add the eggs, applesauce, vinegar, vanilla, red food color, and sugar.
  3. Once wet base is well combined, add remaining (dry) ingredients and mix well.  Scoop little balls of batter onto a Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper covered baking tray and lightly press them down half way.  Bake for 10 minutes, turning the tray around in the oven midway.  Cool.

  4. Prepare frosting:  Mix all ingredients well.
  5. To assemble, place a dollop of the frosting into the center of a cookie bottom, then press the other cookie into the frosting until it has spread to the rim.  Avoid stacking cookies as they may create mess.  Assemble on platter into a domino train.
Tip: For a dairy version, use butter and real cream cheese instead of the margarine and Tofutti cream cheese.

    Hi Chani, 25ml of food coloring should have certainly done the trick! It's possible that the brand of food coloring you used didn't have very strong pigmentation, or that the food coloring was expired. I would try it with another brand and see if your results are more to your liking.
