Sprinkle into spring with these delicious, butter cookies filled with buttercream frosting and colorful sprinkles!
When my dear husband made a Trader Joe's trip the other day, I told him to please find me some new items to try (and review!). He, fortunately, did not disappoint. He walked in with a box of their new These Sprinkles Walk into A Sandwich Cookie that I had heard about on Trader Joe's episode 24 podcast.
The six-cookie box features crumbly, sprinkle-dotted butter cookies filled with a thick layer of buttercream frosting. While the box only contains six cookie sandwiches, which at first was a bit disappointing, they are pretty rich. I personally ate three in one sitting, so the $2.99 box lasted me two sittings. I suppose it is worth stating that the serving size is one—but who only eats one cookie?

For those that stay away from numbered food dyes, rest easy: Trader Joe's colorful sprinkles get their vibrant colors from veggie juice and plant extracts. Fortunately, you would never know by the taste. They're still deliciously sweet and are reminiscent of a sprinkle-laced birthday cake you may have had as a kid.
I personally prefer my desserts to be chocolate, but I was pleasantly surprised by this non-chocolate alternative. While I tried these after dinner, I think they would be quite scrumptious with coffee or tea. The birthday cake-inspired cookies are one of Trader Joe's limited-availability products, so if you see them on your next TJ-run, be sure to snag a box or two!

I've also heard rave reviews about Trader Joe's Springle Jangle, their springtime take on their popular, holiday Jingle Jangle, so I'm hoping to try that next.
