Red Velvet Cream Sandwich Cookies

The military is throwing us a curve ball and as usual, my diet suffered and I baked to eat my feelings.

We're ok.  An upside is that I discovered this awesome cookie recipe.  Silver linings, right?

Red Velvet Cream Sandwich Cookies- adapted from a Duncan Hines box.

1 box of Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of butter, melted & cooled

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Crisco
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (clear vanilla extract is preferred here, but not mandatory)
1/4 cup butter
1/8 cup of milk

To make:

Melt butter and let it cool for a few minutes.  Add all cake ingredients to a bowl and mix by hand until well mixed.  Put in the fridge while you pre-heat your oven to 350.  Place rounded scoops onto a cold baking sheet and bake for 17 minutes or until done- you know your oven better than me!

Let cookies cool.

For the frosting, put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix with the paddle attachment until it has the consistency and taste of frosting.  Not very specific, I know.  If you've made it before, you know, and if you haven't, you'll see very quick. Besides, taste testing frosting isn't exactly a bad instruction, right? :)

Use a butter knife to spread frosting on 1/2 of the cookies and top with the other half of your cookies for sandwiches.
