We are continuing our red, white, and blue week with Red, White & Blue Funfetti Sandwich Cookies. You might remember the Funfetti Cookies I recently made. If you’ve tried them, you know they are awesome! Well, I kicked them up a notch for the 4th of July by creating a sandwich cookie. Yep, you get two cookies with a vanilla buttercream in the center. You have to go all out on holidays!
