Red Velvet Cookies

You could tint the icing red or green for the holidays or put red and green sprinkles on the top of the cookies are you iced them.

Red Velvet Cookies
by Anita Bautsch

This red velvet cookie is so easy to make and is great to serve any time, but especially for holidays like Valentine's Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas. Serve them plain or with the cream cheese frosting.

1 Box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil

Mix all ingredients together. This will make a cookie dough. Roll into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten down slightly (depending on the thickness you desire). Bake at 375 until the tops crackle (about 8-10 minutes) or until desired doneness.

Cool and then frost with basic...

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8 ounce package cream cheese -- softened

1/4 cup stick margarine or butter -- softened

2 teaspoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 cups powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth.

Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed, 1 cup at a time, until smooth and spreadable. Frosts one 13 9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts one 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake. Refrigerate any remaining frosting.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting: Add 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled, with the margarine

Thumbs up These cookies rock!

I have made these cookies and they are THE BOMB! For all you grannys out there, that means they are REALLY GOOD! It makes lots of cookies, I dont like the frosting but i like to add chocolate chips to the mix. And i am not sure if I mixed it too much because it got really sticky and hard to make into a ball. But taste SO GOOD, I cant stop eating them!!!
