RED VELVET WHOOPIE PIES

First I have to start off with a little disclaimer: this is not a food blog, and I have no intention of making it one. However, I love to share with my friends and family, so if I find some delicious, cheap recipes-- that's exactly what I am going to do!


I made this treat to send to Dave for his birthday. He loves red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, so I thought this would be a great mail-able option.

The only things that I bought for this recipe, were a box of red velvet cake mix, and a can of cream cheese frosting. Domestic might as well be my middle name.

This is the recipe that I used to make the cookies:

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
I took 3 tablespoons of the cake mix out before I mixed it, just to be sure the dough would not be too runny. This made it the perfect consistency.
Directions
  1. Mix together cake mix, eggs and oil in a large bowl.
  2. Make little balls with the dough and set on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes. 
Once the cookies were cool, I simply filled a plastic bag with the frosting, cut the end off, and piped the frosting thickly onto the cookies. I then made them into sandwiches and packed them up to send in the mail! So easy, and very delicious.
