Red Velvet Double Doozies !


I made these for my co-workers and they were literally gone in 2 minutes.
I had a recipe for Red Velvet Whoopie Pies but I significantly altered it and came up with this instead.

This makes about 20 cookies.  I  doubled the recipe but learned that the filling is more than enough.  Only the cookie recipe needs to be doubled if you want 40 -  you most likely will not need to double the filling.

Red Velvet Double Doozies

Cookies:
1 box red velvet cake mix
2 eggs
½ cup vegetable oil

Filling:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 375.

Mix together cake mix, eggs and oil (mixture will be thick).

Roll into balls about the size of a walnut and place a couple of inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet (I line it with parchment paper)

Bake in pre-heated oven 8 – 10 minutes (until tops kind of look cracked).

Removed from oven, set aside until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl mix cream cheese and butter until blended. Add milk, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar (a cup at a time) and blend until smooth and creamy (should be slightly thick but spreadable) – add milk a little at a time to thin or add more confectioner’s sugar to thicken.

When cookies are completely cooled, spread filling on half of the cookies, top with the other halves.

NOTE: I was going to roll the edges into chopped pecans but decided not to do that. Next time I think I will do at least half of them that way.

Enjoy !!
