Açaí Cookie Sandwiches

A little sweet, a lot creamy, a hint of purple goodness. These cookies are delish, made fresh and compiled right before you munch.


1 1/2 Cup flour
1 Tbsp cream of tartar
1/2 Tsp baking soda
1/4 Tsp salt

1 Stick (8 Tbsp) of butter, softened
3/4 Cup sugar
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp whole milk

1/2 package of cream cheese
1/2 original açaí smoothie pack

In a standup mixer or by hand with a whisk, mix the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. In another bowl mix butter and sugar till creamy, then add vanilla and milk and mix till fully incorporated. Add the flour mix to the butter mix and blend till mixed.

Flour a cutting board and roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick, then place in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer.


When dough is cooled, use circular cookie cutters to cut out cookies. Make a smaller circle cut into half of the cookies.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees, and bake cookies for 10 minutes or until slightly golden on the edges, then let cool completely.


Right before serving, blend cream cheese with açaí until fully mixed and schmear a tablespoon or so in between two cookies.
