I go through phases with my baking. Right now, I'm all about super easy treats.
When you don't have a lot of time but you really want (need) something sugary, there's nothing better than a quick, easy recipe.

Yield: ~12 sandwiches
Strawberry cake mix- 1 box
Unsalted butter- 1/2 c (1 stick), softened
Unsalted butter- 1 c (2 sticks), softened
Powdered sugar- 3 1/2 c
Vanilla- 1 tsp
Lemon juice- 3-4 tbsp
1. In a large bowl, stir strawberry cake mix, butter and egg until combined. Spoon batter onto an ungreased baking sheet and flatten gently. Bake at 350 degrees F for ~8 minutes- watch them carefully! You do not want them to burn!
2. While cookies are baking, make the filling. In a medium bowl, cream butter. Add vanilla, powdered sugar and lemon juice and beat to combine. Spread a generous amount of filling on cooled cookies.
