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
2 eggs
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

    Just a question. I’m interested in making these, and I LOVE cream cheese, but for those who might not like cream cheese frosting, do you happen to have alternative suggestions for the filling? Would regular store bought frosting work? Just curious!

    Oh My! Yummo! These look too delicious! I may have to make these next weekend for my SundaySchool class…this goes beyond a little bribery tho, they had better be soo good! ;)

    I feel silly but I am ready to make these and am thinking – do I include the ingredients on the cake mix box too – or just the eggs and shortening?

    I followed the recipe exactly and my batter was way too soft and gooey to form into balls! Has anyone else actually tried following this recipe? Did I do something wrong??? Too bad, it looked good.

    I used butter instead of shortening. My batter was very gooey and sticky, but I just used plenty of flour on my hands. However, I ended up with half my frosting left over! Unless you want tons of frosting in your cookies, halve that part of the recipe!

    Just tried these (found them on pinterest) and they are delicious! Thanks for the idea!! I did put a little less shortening, but added a tablespoon or so of milk. Yum!

    I just made these and they are so cute! I’m wondering, because the frosting is made with butter and cheese do I have to refrigerate the cookies?

    Since I had leftover frosting from my original bath, I decided to make chocolate ones. I used devil’s food cake mix, since that’s what I already had. At first, I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. I ended up cooking the balls for 11 minutes at 350, then flattening them out right after they came out of the oven. They ended up firming up better than the strawberry ones which made it easier to spread the frosting, but they are still super soft when you eat them. They ended up being a winner!

    Oil would make a really flat cookie. You could try butter just at room temperature, don’t melt it. Shortening works the best, just not the healthiest option. Hope this helps. -The Six Sisters

    I am finding that 8 minutes is definitely not enough time for these to bake through. I’m making them now and have to put them back in the oven for the third time for a total of at least 15 minutes.

    These were delicious! I made them this past Valentine’s Day for my boyfriend and also ended up taking a batch in to work. My co-workers loved them and my boyfriend thought they were amazing!!!! Definitely a winner :)

    Nice recipe! I tried it with a devils food cake mix. I only used a half cup of shortening, and they came out just fine. I also cut the filling recipe in half and had plenty leftover.

    Made these for Valentine’s Day & they were fantastic! Would definitely cut the filling recipe in half…a lot leftover after all the cookies were done. Great recipe…will use it again!
