Red Velvet Cookies

I was feeling very domestic today. And since I will be visiting one of my best gal pals who just had a baby I wanted to take a desert to go along with the chili I made for her. Bakerella had posted an easy recipe for red velvet cookies and I thought they would be perfect!
So.. I gathered my ingredients together... One red velvet cake mix, one stick of room temp butter and two eggs. Yep.. that is it. Three ingredients... this could not be any easier!!

The three ingredients are put into my handy dandy mixing bowl.....

Now... my little handheld mixer is practically an antique! ( A lovely shade of harvest gold circa late 70's) I have had this little gem for 29 years! It is from Sears and I have used it, and used it... and it just keeps on mixing! Bless it heart... this batter almost did it in. The batter is extremely thick... but the might mixer did the job!

To ensure almost uniform cookie size, I used a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop the batter onto the greased cookie sheet.

Here are the first dozen ready to go in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Ahhh... here are the first dozen cooling off. They are such a pretty deep red, don't you think?

After cooling for a few minutes.... I put them in a zip lockbag so I can frost them later... probably tomorrow.

But.... I wanted to show you the finished cookie.. topped with cream cheese frosting!

Oh yes..... they are definitely delicious!

Trust me..:)

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a
lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with some pics to drive the
message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

of course like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on
several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in
finding it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless
I will certainly come back again.
