Red Velvet Cookies with Cheesecake Filling!
For the cookies:
1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 tbsp Flour
For the filling:
4oz cream cheese
2 c. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp vanilla
For the Topping:
White chocolate chips or almond bark
1. Mix cake mix and flour. Whisk until all lumps are gone. Mix together cake mix/flour mix, eggs, oil and vanilla until smooth. Wrap dough in plastic wrap. The dough will be oily. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
2. Using a mixer combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Using a 1/2 tsp scoop out mix and form into balls. Place balls on a plate and put in freezer for at least 2 hours.
4. Place onto baking sheet. The cookies will spread so space them out. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until they start to look "crackled". Let them cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes. They will be all puffy when you take them out of the oven but will flatten & firm up while they cool. After 5 minutes transfer them to a cooling rack.
5. Once cooled, drizzle with melted white chocolate if desired.
I think these would be good using any cake mix. You could customize it to whatever theme you wanted. I forgot to get a picture of what the inside looks like but it's just cookie with a bit of white filling in the middle. They are SO yummy!
