Red Velvet Oreo Sandwich Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Celebrating Valentine's Day the best way we know how, with Red Velvet! These homemade Oreo cookies use a red velvet cake mix to speed along the baking process and result in super moist, very delicious cookies. Don't even get me started on the homemade cream cheese frosting!

Maybe I’m crazy, but red velvet flavored anything tastes a little better around Valentine’s Day! These are perfect to make with your kids, for your neighbors, or for that very special someone (hoping my husband stumbles across this post!)

We have always loved our mom’s Homemade Oreos because they use a CAKE MIX shortcut, making them so much easier than any other cookie sandwich.

This recipe uses a cake mix as well, with a delicious homemade cream cheese frosting that is sure to win over just about any crush.

How to make red velvet cookies from a cake mix

Have you tried cake mix cookies? We know you’ll love these!

The best thing about making cookies using a cake mix, is the soft and delicious outcome. These are not the consistency of regular Oreos, but more so a soft, yummy cookie sandwich.

Here’s what you’ll need to make Red Velvet Oreo Cookies:

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package red velvet cake mix (we love the Betty Crocker Mix)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening

Step 1: Mix together cake mix, eggs and shortening until well combined. The dough will be pretty thick, it may not feel like regular cookie dough but that’s okay!

Step 2: Roll dough into one inch balls. Making sure they are all similar in size will help you when stacking them.

Step 3: Place dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Immediately transfer cookies to a cooking rack to keep them from cooking longer on the cookie sheet.
