Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies and Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

These cookies are super yummy. I made both the Red Velvet version and the Chocolate version for Father's Day and my husband thought they were pretty great. At least that's what I gathered after he ate seven. I found the recipe on Mommy's Kitchen which is one of my favorite food blogs because her food is all pretty simple to make but very comfort-food-ish.

These cookies come together really quickly and require very few ingredients which fit both the requirements I have for baking.

Red Velvet OR Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

1 box Red Velvet cake mix or chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together and roll cookies into small balls equal in size (no more than a tablespoon). Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on cooling racks. To put together, I put the frosting into a big ziploc bag and cut a small piece off of the bottom corner. Squeeze about 1 Tb filling on the backside of one cookie and place another cookie on top to make a sandwich.

Cream Cheese Filling

1 stick butter, softened
1 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
3-4 c. powdered sugar (depending on how thick you like it)
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream together butter and cream cheese with a mixer. Add in vanilla and mix well. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix until incorporated well and is your desired consistency.
