Combining cardamom cookies with a light and fluffy fruit-flavored filling makes everything wrong in the world right.

Ingredients

  • Cookie1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbs ground cardamom
  • Lime Filling1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
  • Mandarin Filling1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp Mandarin (or orange) zest
  • 1 Tbs fresh mandarin (or orange) juice

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the sugar with 1/2 cup shortening using an electric mixer. Add eggs and continue to mix until well combined.
  • Add flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, vanilla, and cardamon. Blend on low speed for 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and continue to mix for an additional 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl as you blend.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of batter on the baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until no indentation appears when the top is lightly touched.
  • Let cool on cookie sheet or in whoopie pie pan for two minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack until cooled.
  • While cookies are cooling prepare the lime and mandarin fillings in separate medium bowls. Combine all ingredients, using an electric mixer beat on low for one minute.
  • Add desired amount of food coloring, increase speed to high and continue to beat for an additional two minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • To assemble cookies place a dollop of either lime or Mandarin filling on the center of the flat side of one cookie. Top with another cookie and press gently together to evenly spread the icing. Repeat for all cookies.
  • Makes about 20 sandwich cookies.
