Easy red velvet cookies made from cake mix. Perfect for the holidays or anytime!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the eggs.
Melt the butter and add to eggs.
Add the cake mix.
Mix well to create red cookie dough.
Roll dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon size balls and place on parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Leave space between the dough balls as the cookies will spread during baking.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes.
Then move to a wire cooling rack with spatula. Allow the cookies to cool completely if you want to ice or fill them.
Microwave the frosting for 15 to 20 seconds. You want it easily stir-able yet thick enough to not run off .
Leave cookies on wire rack over paper or a baking sheet. Dunk your fork into icing to load it, than shake gently over each cookie in a side to side motion to make lines if cream cheese icing.
Simply slather the tub frosting on each cookie. You may want to microwave the frosting for a few seconds (think under 10 seconds) to soften it and avoid cookie breakage. Add sprinkle if you like.
Spread frosting straight from tub onto back of half the cookies, then press anther cookie on top. In warmer temperatures, you may want to add a little more powdered sugar to the frosting to stiffen it.
