I decided not to make these too large. They spread out and flatten while baking, and I liked the idea of little cream sandwich cookies, so I made them about quarter size.
They are the reddest cookies that I've ever made. Yum.
Is it cheating to use premade cake mix? I say no. And I'm the boss, so ha.
Cream cheese and butter lineup. I still say the butter wins.
These are incredibly easy to make, and don't take very much time. My husband even helped clean up all the baking sheets and mixing bowls. If you know him, you'd know that he really loved these cookies if he was willing to help clean up. He went on a five minute rant about how amazing they are.
