Since I found out I can pretty much make any kind of cookie using a box of cake mix.....I've gone a bit crazy. I have buyers remorse for the huge bag of flour in the pantry which was supposed to be used up by making sugar cookies. Alas, there it sits abandoned amid an array of cake mixes galore.
These are Red Velvet Cream Cheese cookies. Red Velvet is just a new type of thing in these parts. Strange I know, because it seems to be plenty popular in every other part of the universe. So far there is only one brand of cake mix that makes a red velvet version and that is Duncan Hines.
|These are the Cherry Chip but give you the idea of the size.|
1 box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1 tub Cream Cheese type frosting
In a bowl, combine cake mix, eggs and canola oil. Mix well. Using a melon baller.....yes, strange I know, but it makes the perfect size!....scoop out portions of mixture, roll into a ball shape and put onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350*F for 8 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then remove to plate to cool the rest of the way.
Once completely cooled, sandwich together using cream cheese frosting.
OHMYGAWD, THEY ARE DELISH!
Cherry Chip cake mix and add 1 cup chocolate chips. Do not sandwich together. They taste like chocolate covered cherries!
|I've heard Cherry Chip isn't available everywhere :(|
