I'm typically not a red velvet kind of girl, but thought I better make a festive dessert in honor of Valentine's Day coming up!  These were so easy and may have made a red velvet believer out of me!


Red Velvet Oreo Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe:
(Makes 18 cookie sandwiches)

1 (15.25 ounce) package red velvet cake mix
2 eggs
3/4 cups vegetable shortening

1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 (1 stick) butter, softened to room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together 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. Cream together cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread onto cooled cookies and sandwich together.

    Does subbing in butter for the shortening alter the outcome? I really don’t care for shortening and don’t have it in my pantry.
