Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling

Red Velvet Cookie Sandwiches

The Story:
Well, this wraps up my Red Velvet mini-series. But don’t you fret, I still have plenty of Valentines recipes coming that I am really excited for, like the red velvet cupcakes. After all, tomorrow is the start of February…or Singles Awareness Month as a lot of people refer to it as.
But guess who absolutely loved these cookies? Every MAN that tried them. It was really crazy! I mean, the ladies liked them too, but the guys kept going back for more. Maybe they were just shocked they loved them so much…who knows. [end-story]

    I’m looking forward to trying your “Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling” – question though, probably a dumb one but I just want to know. Do these “cookies” need to be kept refrigerated because of the cream cheese filling?

    • 20.1

      I like to refrigerate my whoopie pies all the time anyway because it makes the frosting thicker so that when you bite into the cookie sandwich, the frosting doesn’t gush out the sides. But you’ll be fine for 24 hours, more than that it’s a good idea to put them in the fridge.

      • Teresa says:

        Thank you! I’m planning on making in about another week for my husband to take into work and share…I’ll need to double the recipe though so I can munch too! ;)

    Ramona says:

    Would you ever put the cream cheese in the batter and then bake it?

    • 21.1

      Like inside the batter? Well it wouldn’t be a cream cheese frosting, it would be some cream cheese, egg and a little sugar!

      • Ramona says:

        Forgive the thousand questions…if i don’t want the cream cheese as a frosting but instead want to bake it inside the cookie itself, I should mix the cream cheese with an egg and a little sugar? That’s simple enough for me, I think? Thanks for your help.

    Thanks. I made them once but they were a lil dry. I think I over baked them? Next time should I add a lil more water? And only bake for 7 mins? Thanks

    I have a question. Did you dip the cookies in powered sugar or flour to get the white look on the top?

    Hi Lizzy Mae. Thanks so much for this recipe. It’s a hit every time we make it. My question is how do you get your cookies so flat? Ours round out much more and they are harder to eat. Thanks for any tips you can give me.

    Upright cleaners are heavy and powerful, and sometimes not
    as manoeuvrable as canisters. The attachments and unique design of the Bissell let you keep your home free of allergens and pet hair.
    This brush could be air driven or could be electric and
    plug into an electric outlet by the hose outlet.
