These 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. Cream Cheese Filling 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract Beat together with mixer. Spread on cookies.
