If you like red velvet cake, like me, (that's probably why you are my friend anyway) then you should check out this clever idea/recipe because it's delicious. very. delicious.
Buy 2 boxes of cake mix (or if you want fewer cookies you can just do it with one) and a tub of cream cheese frosting. And then instead of following the directions on the back, use 2 eggs and 1/3 cup vegetable oil for each box (so if you do 2 boxes that's 4 eggs and 2/3 cup veggie oil...I know, I'm a math whiz). Pre-heat to 325 and mix that all in will make more of a cookie batter consistency...that's what you want.

Then roll the batter into balls (like so), grease the cookie sheet, place the dough on the sheet, smush their little tops down to make some flatter circle shapes, and pop them in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

Leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes to cool and then transfer them to a cooling rack. They will look like these cookies above.

Last but certainly not least, it's time to use the frosting.....Pair up the cookies and cover the middles with frosting to create some tasty sandwich cookies!
I like to call them inverted red velvet cupcakes...just as tasty and 0 messiness.
(sorry no pics of the final product, I was way too excited to eat one and flat out forgot)

And the other good news is that even if you don't like red velvet you can do this with any other cake mix as well.....
My mind is already running wild with thoughts of strawberry cake cookies, german chocolate cake cookies, yellow cake with chocolate frosting cookies
