RED VELVET COOKIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese FillingThese red velvet cookies are so good and children love them.  This is the easy way to make these cookies.  A real Southern treat!

1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil (I use Canola)
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup pecan pieces or nuts of your choice
 
Mix all ingredients with mixer except nuts. Fold in nuts.  This batter is oily and easy to work with. I just put it out on the counter, pat it out with my hand, and cut with cookie cutter.  DO NOT USE A LARGE CUTTER.  The cutter I used is 1 1/2 inches across. These cookies will spread so you want them small and about 1/4 inch thick.  You can use anything round that will work for you. (a jar top or cap, etc. Just so it is round and small.  A little larger than a quarter) Spray a baking sheet and bake in  preheated 375 degree oven for about 8 minutes.  If you make larger cookies, you will need to bake 10 to 12 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheet and let cool.  Fill with cream cheese frosting recipe below.  Makes about 4 dozen small cookies or 2 dozen filled cookies depending on size you make them.

  3. I cannot wait to try these. My son loves red velvet cake, but I don’t make it very often so this should be an easier( for me) way to make it for him. Thank you.

  4. These are really good! I usually just use a cookie scoop though. It works great and they are all the same size.
