Sorry for the delay in post’s! Mikey and I have had a complete whirlwind of a couple weeks!
AND I have some SUPER exciting news to share with you…
We bought our first place!
I also had to undergo a minor surgery on my lip on Wednesday and have been spending the past couple days on the couch binge watching Scandal in a painkiller daze.
I have been avoiding Pinterest and my daily blogs because I’m on a liquid diet and looking at food is torture! It’s so hard to skip over the Food Network when you’re spending your days on the couch! But today I am feeling better and was able to have coffee which has made me feel like a new woman!
This was the last thing I baked for the blog in our old place. This post is a bit sentimental but I am excited to test the lighting and try new recipes in our first home!
Red Velvet Cookie Sandwiches with Cream Cheese Frosting
For The Cookies: (I doubled this recipe)
1 B0x Red Velvet Cake Mix
1/3 Cup Oil
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
For the Frosting:
4 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
1/4 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3-4 Cups Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line pans with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil and vanilla extract. Mix well with a spoon or a hand mixer (I just used a wooden spoon).
Place powdered sugar in a small bowl and roll about 1-2 tablespoons of the cookie dough into a ball. Roll in powdered sugar and place on a cookie sheet, placing about 1 inch or 2 apart.
Bake for 7-10 minutes until the cookies lift from the edges and the tops crackle. Remove from oven and let cool.
While cookies cool, make the frosting.
Beat cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Add vanilla and powdered sugar until you reach a desired consistency.
I filled a small ziplock baggie with frosting and cut the corner off. I then piped the frosting around a cookie and placed a similar sized cookie on top.
You can eat immediately or you can refrigerate for up to two days before serving. These are also delicious frozen!
This recipe was recommended by a friend and I found this recipe on Your Cup of Cake blog.
