Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

I made these cookies for Elise's teachers for some holiday yummies.

I posted some pics on Instagram and lots of ladies asked for the recipe, so I thought I'd share on the ol' blog! :) The recipe is very easy, pretty messy, but very easy.

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 egg lightly beaten
2 cups cool whip
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the first three ingredients until well blended. Place powdered sugar in a separate bowl. Using a teaspoon, drop batter into sugar to coat and roll into a ball. Note- the batter will be very sticky and messy, the sugar helps to form the balls.

Place balls 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheet immediately to cool.

I sprinkled with green sprinkles to be extra festive! :)

I also thought I would make them extra indulgent by making them cream cheese sandwich cookies!

I just bought the whipped cream cheese tub of icing and piped it on to the cookie, sandwiched them, and voila!

I then got these fab boxes, liners, and ribbon from Michaels to deliver them in! I must say, I am very happy with how they turned out! :)

Hope you all enjoy!! Fa La La!!

Oh and PS, you can use any cake mix. These were originally a lemon cookie recipe and I decided to do Red Velvet to make festive fabulousness!! :)
