Red Velvet Cookies

My husband likes to bring in treats for his co-workers from time to time. Sometimes he asks me to help, which I am over-the-top happy to do! I love baking cupcakes and other desserts, but my triathlon "diet" doesn't want me to have a kitchen full of desserts that I shouldn't eat. So I jump at the chance to make goodies for other people.

I decided that I would test out Bakerella's Easy Valentine's Treats. All I needed was a box of red velvet cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup butter, and a jar of cream cheese frosting.

Interesting side note: I had somewhat of a hard time finding red velvet cake mix. I tried three different grocery stores (Ralph's, Fresh & Easy, Albertson's) before I finally found my cake mix at Target of all places! I stocked up so I wouldn't have this problem in the future.

Bakerella's recipe requires you to make your own frosting. Because of my limited time this weekend, I decided to just use frosting from a jar. I used Betty Crocker's Rich & Creamy Cream Cheese frosting.

I tested a few of the cookies out with my family last night. Delicious! They loved them! Now I will have to see how much my husband's co-workers enjoy them. Who wouldn't love one of these on a Monday?!

I had the same problem. I couldn't find red velvet cake mix ANYWHERE. But i didn't try Target, I'll definitely look there. I was wondering if this recipe would work with a homemade red velvet cupcake recipe....

how moist were your cookies? i tried the recipe found on a lot of other sites that used 1/3 cup oil instead of your 1/2 cup butter. the cookies i made turned out pretty crumbly on the edges and chewy in the middle- not what i was expecting. thanks!
