Valentine's Cake Mix Sandwich Cookies

Yield: 26-28 cookies, 13-14 sandwich cookies


Ingredients

Cookies:
  • 1 box Devil's Food or Chocolate cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
Filling*:
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick/2oz.) salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
  • drop of pink food coloring, if desired
*If using canned frosting, just stir cherry juice directly into a container of vanilla frosting, until desired color/flavor is reached.



Directions

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, eggs and oil until combined. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, and flatten into disks, at least 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 9-11 minutes, or just until the cookies are set in the middle. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack, to cool completely.

To make the filling, beat the softened butter on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and cherry juice, until desired consistency, flavor and color is reached. Increase to medium-high speed and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes until smooth, light and fluffy.

Using a small heart shaped cookie cutter, cut a heart out of the top of half of the cookies. place the other half of the cookies upside down on a plate and spread an even layer of frosting onto the bottom side of the completely cooled cookies. Gently press the heart cut-out cookies on top, and enjoy!
