Caramel Creme Sandwich Cookies

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: about 28 sandwich cookies 1x


2 soft brown sugar cookies are sandwiched with a browned butter buttercream. A truly indulgent cookie!




  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups (4 sticks) butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 cups flour


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 6 tablespoons milk


To make the cookies:

  1. In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter together. Add in the egg yolks and the flour and mix well. Turn out onto a piece of plastic wrap and wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325F. Grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  3. Roll the dough out to 1/4″ thick. Cut the cookies with a round cookie cutter. (If the dough is soft, refrigerate until firmed up.) Place the cookies 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet.

To make the frosting:

  1. Place the butter in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Stirring often, cook until brown flecks appear. Take off the heat.
  2. Add the vanilla and confectioners’ sugar to the butter and whisk to combine. Whisk in the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until creamy and smooth.
  3. Using an offset spatula or butter knife, frost the underside of 1 cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat with the rest of the cookies.
  4. Cookies will keep in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days.
