I made this recipe for a fundraiser for a friend. It was an amazing event that my brother and sister-in-law put together for a lovely teacher and friend. Here is a bit of her story. http://www.4caryn.org/
The cookies turned out delicious.
1 box red velvet cake mix
1/2 cup canola oil
4 ounces cream cheese
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350F. To make cookies, mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and flour. Scoop onto lightly greased or parchment baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until tops look cracked.
Meanwhile, make the filling by beating the cream cheese and butter with an electirc mixer. Mix in milk and vanilla, then beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Place 1-2 Tablespoons of filling in the center of a cookie. Top with a second cookie and press toghether until the filling reaches the edges of the cookies. Makes about 15 sandwiches.
