Ooooo Red Velvet in a Cookie?

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I found these awesome Red Velvet Cookies at Bakerella! My husband Jack loves Red Velvet Cake and his Nana Bette made it from scratch. (I never could get that down).  But these look manageable.  Yes! I need to make these and invite lots of people over to help eat them or give them away to friends.


Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies
They are sweet and red and a perfect little treat to give on the 14th. And even better, they are super-easy!
All you need is
1 Box red velvet cake mix*
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 Eggs

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Mix ingredients until combined.
    • Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter onto baking sheet about two inches apart.
    • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    • Cool.
    Cream Cheese Filling
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 1lb. Box of confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
  • In a mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and vanilla.
  • Gradually add sugar and mix until smooth.
Makes about 24 cookies or 12 cookie sandwiches
* Any cake mix should work.
Recipe amended slightly from this one at allhomemadecookies.com

Tip: For consistent size cookies, use a 1.5 inch small ice cream scooper when placing batter on the baking sheet.
The finished cookie size will be about 3 inches wide.


To assemble, spoon a small amount of frosting on the flat side of one cookie. Take another cookie and press together until frosting is flush with the edge.

And ENJOY, of course!
(I'd love to know if anyone makes these! )
