Easy Dessert: Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies


These cookies are so delicious and look like more work than they are. I love looking like I spent hours slaving away in the kitchen when in actuality I didn’t. I got the recipe from the Duncan Hines website after I was able to get a couple boxes of red velvet cake for free. I love couponing 🙂  Anyhow, here is the recipe I used- I hope you like it!

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

1 box of red velvet cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 container of cream cheese frosting


* In medium bowl, combine and mix well the cake mix, eggs, and melted butter. (side note: I didn’t melt the butter completely and it took a lot longer to mix, so make sure to melt it!)

* Make 1 Tbsp balls and drop about 2 inches apart. Using a 1 Tbsp will keep them uniform, which is important to make a nice looking cookie sandwich. See (blurry- sorry) pic below:


* Preheat oven to 350F, bake for 10-12 minutes

* Cool completely

* Using a butter knife, spread a liberal amount of frosting on bottom side of one cookie. Take another cookie, and gently spread icing on cookie, making a sandwich, like an oreo. I twisted the non frosted cookie clockwise to get the icing on the rest of the frosted cookie and didn’t squeeze it down too much so the frosting wouldn’t smash out. It is hard to describe the technique, but it really isn’t hard, just experiment with what works best for you.

* Let the icing harden a bit for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!
