Red Velvet Cookies

This week is Red Velvet week as Valentine’s day will be here before you know it. I usually just do a Valentine week, but with red velvet being such a big trend lately, I decided to do an entire week of just red velvet treats. It is the perfect way to say I love you.

First up is an easy cookie recipe made using a red velvet cake mix. I use to have to search for a Duncan Hines cake mix, but this year I found that Betty Crocker now has a red velvet mix available in stores. These cookies are simple to make and are then topped with a traditional cream cheese frosting.
