Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Here is something I tried for Christmas- and they were yummy!

The Inspiration: 

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies


The Ingredients:


Cookies

  • 1 (18.25 oz.) box red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour

Filling
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


The Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
COOKIES:
  • Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and flour
  • Scoop onto lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheets
  • I used a biscuit cutter to shape the cookies so when they came out they would all be the same size and the tops and bottoms would fit better together
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until tops look cracked
  • Cool completely
FILLING:
  • To make the filling, beat the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer 
  • Mix in milk and vanilla, then beat in powdered sugar until smooth
  • Place 1-2 tablespoons of filling in the center of a cookie
  • Top with a second cookie and press together until the filling reaches the edges of the cookies 
  • Makes about 15 sandwiches

The Verdict:
*I rolled the edges of my filling in green sugar to make it more festive for Christmas.
*Mine were a huge hit. I think this would work well with any other type of cake mix too. 
*Here is the link to another recipe for the filling using marshmallow instead of cream cheese.



Here's how mine turned out:
