Red Velvet Cake Cookies

Ingredients:
1 box of red velvet cake mix
2 eggs
3/4 C shortening

Cream Cheese Drizzle:
1/2 C powdered sugar, sifted
2 oz cream cheese (1/4 package), softened at room temperature
2 Tbs butter, melted
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs milk

Yield: About 2 dozen cookies (depending on the size you make them)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

??????????

Combine the cake mix, eggs, and shortening in a large bowl until smooth. The mixture will be very thick. Roll dough into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

??????????

After baking, cool completely on wire racks.

To make the drizzle, combine all ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy. Use a spoon to drizzle over the cookies. Use as much or as little as you want! The drizzle is optional, as the cookies taste delicious without a topping. Or a light dusting of plain powdered sugar tastes great, too!

Enjoy!
