Homemade Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies
 
This week we had company for dinner for the first time
in our NEW [not-yet-done-being-painted-or-decorated] HOUSE!
 
And really what is dinner without dessert?
 
My husband, the attention-to-detail-payer that he is,
wanted to make something beautiful and mostly homemade.
 
We found a recipe for these cookie sandwiches,
tweaked it to work for us and voila!
Gorgeous dessert!
 
You'll Need:
 
1 boxed red velvet cake mix
2 T flour
1/2 C oil
2 eggs
parchment paper
1 jar frosting
we used cream cheese
 
Beat that all together real good and spoon evenly
we used a Tablespoon measure, you can use any small scoop
onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.
 
Bake 5 minutes at 350 degrees
Turn the pan
Bake 5 more minutes
Cool
 
Cookies will look like this:

Get out your store-bought frosting and stir it up good
Shove some into a plastic sandwich bag and seal
cut off one corner of the bag for a "decorating tip"

Pipe the frosting in a circle around the outside edge and work your way in

Keep going...

Place cookie tops on frosted cookie bottoms 
Don't smoosh down too hard, you want them to be soft and pillow-like!

Gaze in awe at your beautiful, worthy-of-company creation!

Enjoy!
