Mint Buttercream Frosting

2 1/2
cups powdered sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
tablespoons whole milk
teaspoon mint extract


  1. 1 Cut dough into 24 slices, using sharp knife. Bake cookies according to wrapper directions except sprinkle dough with sanding sugar before baking; cool completely before frosting.
  2. 2 While cookies are cooling, make Mint Buttercream Frosting. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in mint extract and 1 tablespoon milk. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  3. 3 To make sandwiches, on each of 12 cookies, top sides down, spread thin layer frosting almost to edge. Top frosting with remaining cookies, top sides up; press together slightly.
