Red Velvet Cookies

by Laura

This week is Red Velvet week as Valentine’s day will be here before you know it. I usually just do a Valentine week. However, with red velvet is such a big trend lately. So, I decided to do an entire week of just red velvet treats. It is the perfect way to say I love you. First up is an easy recipe for red velvet cookies made using a red velvet cake mix.

I usually have to search for a Duncan Hines cake mix. But this year I found that Betty Crocker now has a red velvet mix available in stores. These red velvet cookies are simple to make and are then topped with a traditional cream cheese frosting.
