red velvet cookies

One of my all time favorite ways to make cookies is with cake mix.  It’s simple and the variety of ways to make them is basically endless!  I made these Chocolate Chip Cake Batter Cookies a while back, and this year I thought I would make Red Velvet Cake Cookies for Valentine’s Day.

This time I used the full amount of oil and all the works with these.  They would be the perfect treat for work or to take to your child’s school for Valentine’s Day.

Red Velvet Cake Cookies

Yield: 2 Dozen


  • 1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder


  • 1 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 Container of Whipped Vanilla Frosting
  • Sprinkles (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together the cake ingredients until the dough forms. It will be a bit more oily than typical cookie dough.
  3. Spray a cookie sheet with Bake Easy or use parchment, and drop the dough in about a tablespoon size, 2 inches apart.
  4. This recipe made 2 dozen for us. These will bake 10-12 minutes, then remove and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip together the cream cheese and vanilla frosting until it is blended.
  6. Top each cookie with a little bit of frosting and sprinkles.

    i’d like to make these for christmas gifts, how does the cream cheese affect their “shelf-stableness?” do they require refrigeration?

    Though charge is an imperative element necessary to be considered,
    however, your decision should be quality with inexpensive cost.
    It is observed that most soil dirt won’t get removed from
    the carpet fibers. Hiring a cleaning professional is the easiest option
    for carpet cleaning.

    You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be
    actually something which I believe I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I am having a look forward in your subsequent submit, I will try to
    get the dangle of it!
