red velvet whoopie cookies {and it’s not even february}

it’s like a whoopie pie | meets the perfect soft cookie | meets red velvet cake…

uh yeah…

i know i know,

we apparently are in fall already and i’m supposed to be making fall-themed food…

mostly pumpkin and all that…. i get it, i do.

 

and i’m on board, i love pumpkin just like the next guy…

but yesterday, i looked in my nearly-empty cabinets, just after coming home from church,

and i thought to myself, “there’s got to be SOMETHING in here i can make, right?”

 

i saw my red velvet mix and suddenly had a huge craving for these naughty red velvet whoopie cookies.

i had seen something similar before, but i hadn’t tried it with my new cream cheese frosting recipe

{that is perfect. not too sweet, not too cream-cheesy. it’s perfect…}

anyway, i saw FAR too many recipes for how to make these from scratch.

ladies! why waste your time, when they already have a box to do that stuff for you?

and don’t be all, “cause it’s healthier!”

cause remember, you are about to eat cookies.

so just grab a box of cake mix!

sadly, i do that every time i see them on sale. i have a bit of a collection.

i know, you are so disgusted. but i don’t judge YOU for your pantry full of chocolate chips, do i?

let’s call it even.

anyway, i hadn’t tried the whole cake box into cookies trick yet with red velvet for some reason, and now i KNOW i will be craving these…

i had to give lots away, let’s just say that…

Ingredients

  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • filling:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temp
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

what to do

preheat oven to 350. mix up cookie dough. drop in 1 teaspoon-sized balls onto a parchment-lined pan about 1-2 inches apart. bake for 7-9 minutes, or until cookies crack, then remove them. let them sit on the pan for 5-10 minutes before removing them. {they continue to cook slightly on the pan, and you want that.}

beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth, add in butter until combined, then add remaining. frosting will be perfect texture to sandwich between two cookies!
