Don't miss my Teeny Tiny Spice Company Giveaway #1: Vindaloo - entries accepted until Saturday, Feb 12th at about 5 PM, EST.
This is an easy, festive cookie recipe. I admit, it's not much from scratch. It's cake mix. It's store-bought frosting. But, it's delicious. It's quick. It's perfect for a bake sale. (This recipe can easily be halved.. you'll just have leftover frosting)
And, it's red. Nice for Valentine's Day. On top of this, The Girl has decided that the best cake in the world is Red Velvet cake. It's apparently become very popular in her class from another boy's birthday cupcakes.
You just have to love second grade.
Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies
2 boxes Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 c softened butter
1 container cream cheese frosting
Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine cake mix, eggs, and butter.
Scoop cookie dough out onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Once cookies are entirely cool, squeeze or spread about a tablespoon of frosting onto half of the cookies, and top with the other cookies to create sandwiches.
