I'm the only girl in my house which means we don't see much of the color pink, so when Valentine's Day rolls around I finally have an excuse to bake and decorate with pink!
What could be better than pink cookies?!
Strawberry Valentine Oreo Cookies Recipe:
(Recipe adapted from 30 Handmade Days)
1 package of strawberry cake mix
3/4 cup of shortening
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 stick of butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together strawberry cake mix, eggs and shortening until well combined. The dough will be pretty thick. Roll dough into balls, making sure they are all similar in size. Place dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies to a cooking rack.
Mix together cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread onto cooled cookies and sandwich together.
*Makes 12-15 cookies after they are sandwiched together
