Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and these sandwich cookies are a perfect red and white treat. They’re also really, really good! You could always make the cookies from scratch, but this cake mix version is just right for a sandwich cookie. They’re a little bit chewy and just the right thickness.
I find the easiest way to handle the filling is to spoon it into a zip-top plastic bag. Then I snip of a corner and pipe the filling right onto the cookies. You could replicate this cookie with just about any flavor of cake mix, but the red velvet version is definitely a stand out!
- 1 (18.25 oz.) box red velvet cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To make cookies, mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and flour. Scoop onto lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until tops look cracked. Cool completely. Meanwhile, make the filling by beating the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer. Mix in milk and vanilla, then beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Place 1-2 tablespoons of filling in the center of a cookie. Top with a second cookie and press together until the filling reaches the edges of the cookies. Makes about 15 sandwiches.
Who Dished It Up First: I spotted these cookies at The Family Kitchen.
