Red velvet sandwich cookies are chewy and filled with cream cheese frosting. Try this dessert recipe for Christmas or Valentine’s Day!
Who here is a red velvet cake fan? You’re in luck. I have made delicious red velvet sandwich cookies that taste just like the cake. Filled with smooth cream cheese frosting, these chewy cookies are unbelievably good.
So we all know what red velvet cake tastes like, right? It’s a slightly cocoa-y irresistible flavor. Now, imagine that as a cookie. It’s just as good (if not better) than you think.
Red velvet cookies are chewy, thick and easy to make. Just like any drop cookie, you have your flour, butter, eggs, sugar, etc. But to make these cookie red velvet you need a couple tablespoons cocoa powder and a couple teaspoons red food dye.
And just like that there you have red velvet cookies! They were an excellent consistency (sturdy, but tender and chewy) for making cookie sandwiches. Cream cheese frosting was the obvious filling.
Cream cheese frosting is so sweet and smooth. If it was socially acceptable, I would take spoonfuls of the frosting for dessert. Thankfully, a red velvet cookie works just as well as a spoon when it comes to consuming cream cheese frosting.
I used a frosting bag and tip to fill the cookies, but a knife or spoon works just as well! I personally like the swirl of frosting peeking out between the two cookies.
The deep red color is perfect for the holidays too! Red velvet sandwich cookies are a perfect addition to the Christmas cookie plate. They remind me a lot of Santa’s red suit! There’s no doubt in my mind that he would be a fan 😉
And this cookie isn’t limited to December. When Valentine’s Day rolls around, make red velvet cookie sandwiches for your sweetheart! He/she will adore this sweet treat. It’s also a good dessert to make for a friend’s birthday if they are a red velvet fan!
If I had to describe these cookies in one sentence, I would say, “A red velvet sandwich cookie is like eating red velvet cake with your hands.”
What? It’s true! No utensils needed. Just grab a cookie and get your red velvet fix!
