Ingredients
  

Funfetti Cookies:

  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cup (364g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 3/4 cup (330g) all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sprinkles - jimmies, nonpareil, or quins

Whipped Marshmallow Buttercream Filling:

  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup (141g) confectioners sugar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 jar marshmallow creme
  • 1/4 fine sea salt

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the softened butter and the sugar until light, fluffy and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and the eggs, one at a time, and mix after each addition, just until combined.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix on low just until the flour is incorporated.
  • Remove the bowl from the stand mixer. Stir in the sprinkles.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to evenly portion the dough into balls and place on baking sheets, leaving two inches between the cookies. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • While the cookies are chilling in the fridge, heat the oven to 375F.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to turn a light, golden brown. The centers should be just set. Cool completely.
  • While the cookies are cooling, prepare the marshmallow buttercream filling. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the butter and confectioners sugar on low until combined. 
  • Add the salt, vanilla bean paste, and milk, mixing on low until incorporated. Add in the marshmallow cream.
  • Turn the mixer to medium high and whip the buttercream, scraping the bowl every two minutes or so, for 8 minutes, until super light,  fluffy and creamy.
  • Transfer the buttercream to a piping bag fitted with your choice of piping tip. Pipe a circle of buttercream on half of the cookies, leaving a bit of space (about 1/4 inch) around the edge of the cookie.
  • Top with remaining cookies, pressing the sandwiches together so that the buttercream is near the edges.
  • Roll the edges of the sandwich cookies in sprinkles. At this point you can refrigerate the cookies to firm up the buttercream or serve as is.
