  2. 1/2 cup orange flavored vodka
  3. 1/4 cup water

Heat oven to 350°F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper, silicone baking liners, or lightly spray with cooking spray.

Pipe batter into small circles onto cookie sheets about 1-inch apart to allow for spreading.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until set being careful to not over bake. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets and place on cooling rack. Cool completely before filling.

  2. 1/2 cup crisco shortening
  3. 2 cups powdered sugar
  4. 7 oz. marshmallow fluff
  5. 1/2 tsp vanilla
  6. 1/2 tsp orange flavored vodka
  7. Nutmeg, freshly grated (optional)

Beat butter, shortening, vodka and vanilla on high until creamy. Beat in marshmallow fluff. Once fully combined, reduce speed to low and add powdered sugar.  Mix for 1 minute on low, then and grated nutmeg (to taste) and increase speed to high. Beat until fluffy.

Once cookies are cooled spread frosting on flat side of one cookie. Top with the second cookie, flat side down to make a sandwich.
