  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, 1/2 cup butter, and 2 eggs.
  • Divide dough evenly between two bowls.
  • Add a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl, mixing well. Continue adding food coloring until you get your desired shade of red.
  • Repeat this process for the blue in the other bowl.
  • Drop cookie dough by rounded spoonfuls onto the parchment paper.
  • Bake 10-11 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in powdered sugar.
  • Once cookies are cooked and cooled, pipe icing onto one cookie and top with another cookie. Be sure to flip the cookies over so you have a flat surface on both sides of the icing.
  • Hold cookies sideways and rotate to sprinkle with fun patriotic sprinkles.
