Cookie Post #2

If you like red velvet cake, and even if you don't you must try these cookies. I'm not usually the biggest fan of red velvet, but I am a fan of cheesecake. Again, just like the Lemon Burst cookies I posted about these were so easy to make but took a bit more time. 

Here's the recipe.

1 box red velvet cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
2 tbsp flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla

4 oz. cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Preaheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake powdered cake mix, flour, eggs, oil and vanilla in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Let both refrigerate for 30 minutes to harden a bit (this makes it easier to work with).
Form the batter into a patty and scoop cream cheese in the middle. Form another patty to place on top and mold the two together. I found it easier to make the outside a bit thinner than the middle, that way the filling doesn't pop out. This is much easier than it seems.
Place on a well-greased cookie sheet. Space these babies pretty far apart--they get huge.
Here they are! These were delish. My only change is the filling in the middle. If you don't put enough inside it can be hard to taste. So stuff in as much as possible. 
Happy Baking!
