Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

We love homemade oreos in our family. Since we love the original chocolate ones so much I thought why not try them with red velvet too. These may be my new favorite cookies. 

Cookies:
2 boxes red velvet cake mix
2/3 c. vegetable oil
4 eggs

Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs. Scoop into balls and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes (depending on size of cookies). I do mine 1 inch and bake for about 7 minutes, don't over bake. Let cool completely before frosting  

Cream cheese filling:
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cube butter, softened 
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. powdered sugar
+ milk to consistency

Cream together butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Add powdered sugar and milk until frosting reaches desired thickness. It helps to put them in the fridge or freezer after frosting to help the frosting set.

We made these as a family and my brother claims they are the best cookies he's ever had. Thanks for sharing!
