I don't know about you, but Red velvet Cake ranks high on the list of beloved desserts in this house. My mother made it years ago with an 8 minute-on-the-stove-icing to die for! We all loved it and requested it for our collective birthdays. When she passed away, I have made it for various family members and friends....with sometimes curious results! It usually ends up being really flat! I have never figured out what I do wrong, but that is the way it is. I have cut those cakes in half and have made them 4 layer cakes with LOTS of icing in order to make them look normal, but alas, I am a failure in that department. When the RVC mix came out, I was thrilled...I could fake it!
Monday, friends came to visit from Chicago. Wanting to make dinner a little special I was looking for something different for dessert. I found this favorite cake mix, good looking, easy recipe on another blog, and since I was babysitting too, it fit the bill. Sorry, if this is from your blog, I'd love to give credit where due, but I don't remember where I read it!
Recipe....1 red velvet cake mix add two eggs and 1 stick of butter, mix well, dough is stiff.
Spoon onto buttered baking sheet. I used an ice cream scoop because it makes a more uniform cookie. Bake at 350* for about 10 minutes.
Then onto icing! yum!...Mix 8oz cream cheese with 1 stick of butter and 1 lb powered sugar. (I used less, prob 3/4c or so...)
Fresh out of the oven....
Spread icing on cookies.....
Red Velvet Cookies!!! .....(and they were dang good!)
