I’m not picky about desserts, but during the spring and summer, I often crave lemony sweets. These Lemon Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Cream Filling hit the spot. I’m confident you’re going to enjoy them, too. Let me walk you through the recipe.

How to Make Lemon Sandwich Cookies:

To start, make the thin lemon cookies. You can find that recipe here. I also included a link to it in the printable recipe card below.

This Thin Lemon Cookie Recipe is a bright, tart, and sweet cookie recipe you will love. #cookie #lemon #recipe #thincookie #dessert

Once your cookies are baked, it’s time to whip up the lemon cream filling.

You’ll need an electric mixer for this. I used a stand mixer, but a hand mixer will work just fine.

Begin by mixing the cream cheese until smooth. Then, add the confectioners’ sugar, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Mix to combine.

Next, mix in the heavy whipping cream. Add it slowly and beat until stiff peaks form. Now you’re ready to fill the cookies.

I found that a piping bag makes this fairly easy. If you don’t have one, add the lemon cream to a large plastic baggie and snip off one corner. If you’re not comfortable with either of those options, spread the filling on with a knife.

Put the cream on the bottoms of half of the thin lemon cookies and then top them with the remaining cookies.

Voila! You’ve just made Lemon Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Cream Filling.

The combination of a crisp cookie with tangy-sweet filling is out-of-this-world. And with lemon juice AND lemon zest in both the cookies and the filling, there’s so much lemon goodness!

If you're a fan of lemon, you're going to adore these Lemon Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Cream Filling. They are bursting with bright, sweet, and creamy lemon flavor! You can make them any time of the year, but I especially like them as a spring or summer treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 Recipe Thin Lemon Cookies (64 Cookies) - Recipe Linked Below
Lemon Cream Filling:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese - softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  • Begin by preparing the Thin Lemon Cookies. The recipe is linked in the notes below.
  • As the cookies cool, prepare the lemon cream filling.
  • Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. (Either a stand or hand mixer will work. I recommend using the whisk attachment.)
  • Then, beat in the confectioners' sugar, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Next, slowly add the heavy whipping cream, beating until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the filling to a piping bag fitted with a round tip (or a plastic bag with a corner snipped off). Place 2-3 teaspoons of filling on the bottom of a thin lemon cookie and top with another thin lemon cookie to sandwich the cream. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container in a chilled location. The cookies can also be frozen.

Notes

You can find the recipe for the Thin Lemon Cookies HERE.
You will have some leftover Lemon Cream Filling. It makes a yummy dip for fruit or berries.
If you're like me and enjoy a cookie straight out of the freezer, these Lemon Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Cream Filling are super delicious even when frozen.

    I really like this “LEMON SANDWICH COOKIES” i tried at home at this was amazing and the taste of lemon is fantastic i really recommend this…Thank You

  • Susan at

    Does the filling set up or does it smoosh out when you bite down on the cookie?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s a bit lighter, so it will squish out a bit. However, if you want to avoid that, they are quite delicious frozen. It how I’ve been eating them. Enjoy!!

    lemon cookies are one of my downfalls! Have never had a creamy version, wow, cream cheese and whipping cream, so rich, saving this for the weekend when I can make these and give most away so I won’t eat all of them, thank you!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Smart plan! Enjoy!!

      xo Michael
