    Let cookie dough stand at room temperature 10 minutes. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add remaining Cookie ingredients. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.) Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Place dough in decorating bag fitted with large star tip. Using circular motion, starting on the outer edge and working inward, squeeze dough into 24 cookies about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter, 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

    Spoon 1 rounded tablespoonful filling on bottoms of 12 of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides together, to make sandwich cookies. Sprinkle with coarse sparkling sugar. Store in refrigerator.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

    Get creative with the filling in these cookies! Seasonal flavors like pumpkin, caramel or butterscotch would all be great ways to mix up the flavor profile and add a personal touch.
