Easy Valentine Treats

Bakerella doesn't leave the baking-challenged behind. If you aren't a baking genius, then give these "Easy Valentine Treats" a try. She even uses a box cake mix in her recipe.

All of you need to make these special red velvet moon pies is a red velvet cake mix, butter, eggs, cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla. I bet you could even use cream cheese frosting from a jar to make this recipe even easier.

1 Box red velvet cake mix
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 Eggs
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix ingredients until combined.
  • Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter onto baking sheet about two inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool.
Cream Cheese Filling
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 1lb. Box of confectioner's sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
  • In a mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and vanilla.
  • Gradually add sugar and mix until smooth.
Makes about 24 cookies or 12 cookie sandwiches

Surprisingly, I buy mine from Ralph's. There have been one or two occasions where they didn't have it, but it should be easily available.
