Red Velvet Crinkle Sandwiches

Oh My GOSH! What a stunning cookie.  The bright red cookie with white powdered sugar spots is sure to catch your eye.  These cookies are amazing and great on their own, but you know me, I gotta involve frosting where I can.  

You can use this "crinkle" cookie technique with any flavor of cake mix, but with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I of course, went with Red Velvet. 
Make these for your sweetie on Valentine's Day.  The cookie is soft and chewy with just enough sweetness. 
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
1 box red velvet cake mix
6 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted 
2 eggs
1/2 c. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine cake mix, melted butter and eggs and beat until combined.  Place powdered sugar in a small bowl.  Roll dough into roughly 1-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar.  Place on greased baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are set.  

Cream Cheese Filling
From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 Tbl. milk, plus more if needed

Beat butter and cream cheese until creamy.  Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until light and fluffy.  Add the vanilla, salt and milk and beat until combined.  If mixture is too thick, add a little extra milk.  Spread between cooled cookies.  

Jenn's Notes: I got 30 cookies out of one batch (15 sandwiches).  The cookies will look slightly underdone, but set up just fine.  Try not to overbake them.

  19. I just ruined my sweet-free diet on these and I must say, it was well worth it! I substituted 2/3 cup shortening for the butter (no butter in the house) and turned out delish!

  20. I just made these beauties...but mine are puffier like cake and not flat and chewy like yours. What did I do wrong?!

    1. I'm not sure. Was your butter completely melted when you added it? Mine were a little puffy, but as soon as I removed them from the oven they flattened and they were very chewy, not cakey at all.

    2. Yes, it was melted. After cooling they were a little flatter and were good. My sugar didn't look as pretty as yours, it seemed to melt into the cookie. But they were easy and yummy and I will make them again!

    3. That is so weird? I was surprised with how well the sugar stuck on my cookies too. I'm glad they still tasted yummy. - Jenn
