Red Velvet Cookies

I grew up on cake mix cookies.  It was a big deal back in the day. Some genius mom figured out you could remove a whole lot of time and measuring by using cake mix as dry ingredients for other recipes besides cake. Dear lady, thank you – you rock! We made all kinds growing up, yellow with chocolate chips, lemon, plain ol’ vanilla and iced them; but, we never dreamt of red velvet. Silly kids.

Red Velvet Cookies:

1 box of Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 cup cake flour
2 sticks of butter, room temp
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 package white chocolate chips
or you can roll old school: 
1 box cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Whip butter until soft and fluffy; slowly incorporate cake mix and flour.  Add egg  and vanilla and mix in completely.  Stir in white chocolate chips; form into one inch balls, or use a cookie scoop, and back for 8 – 10 minutes. Voilà!

Quick. Simple. Magical. Next time I am going to make them without the white chocolate chips and turn them into cookie sandwiches.  Maybe thin the cookie dough out a little and make Red Velvet Cream Pies (like the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies) with some fresh buttercream frosting in the middle. Oh… can’t wait 🙂
