Red Velvet Cookies

I am going to attempt and bake these! Maybe tonight :) I am excited!



Cream Cheese Frosting


  1. Mix all the cookie ingredients together. This will make a cookie dough.
  2. Roll into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten down slightly (depending on the thickness you desire).
  3. Bake at 375° until the tops crackle (about 8-10 minutes) or until desired doneness.
  4. Cool and then frost (they're also good without the frosting).
  5. For the frosting, beat cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth.
  6. Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed, 1 cup at a time, until smooth and spreadable. Frosts one 13 × 9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts one 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake. Refrigerate any remaining frosting.

I am going to do things a little differently - I hope. Instead of ball cookies, I will put the mix in a ziplock bag and try to pipe them into either a spiral or maybe a lady-finger like line. I haven't decided. I am still trying to decide to use the icing they suggested or use a glaze. I love my mom's kitchen, so I have the itch to bake something :D
