Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

SONY DSCToday turned out to be  a baking day. I made a banana bread, which lasted approx. 5 minutes since I had 5 kids here and I made red velvet cookies with cream cheese frosting. It felt good to spend a day in the kitchen! I had 3 girls and 2 boys running around along with 2 playful dogs, all of whom hovered around the oven. I love summer days!

These red velvet cookies are a recipe of one of my favorite bloggers I follow, The Southern Lady Cooks. She has some great recipes and y’all should follow her if you aren’t already! This is the link to her recipe that I used.

The only thing I did differently was I didn’t add nuts since my kids won’t eat anything that has nuts in it and I used my star cookie cutter since tomorrow is the 4th of July! They turned out fantastic and I am so glad I decided to make these, thank you Judy for a great recipe! These are easy to make and the kids love them, ok who am I kidding, my husband and I love them probably more!



1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil (I use Canola)
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup pecan pieces or nuts of your choice ( I didn’t use any)
I’m going to make you go to thesouthernladycooks to get the directions:-) It’s so easy!
Cream Cheese Filling
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
