Red velvet cookies

13 Feb

I made these in both Red Velvet and Strawberry for my daughters valentines day party at school. I really liked them both, but the red velvet were my favorite. These cookies turn out light and fluffy. You could do this in any flavor, and I’ve heard lemon is good.

Ingredients

– 1 box red velvet cake mix (15.25 oz)
– 2 egg whites
– 8 oz of cool whip (1 tub)
– 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions

1. Line baking pans with parchment paper.

2. Mix cake mix, egg whites, and cool whip together with a hand mixer. It will be very sticky. You may have to scrape beaters with a spoon.

3. Chill dough for 30 min or longer.

4. Use a small cookie scoop to form appx 1 tbsp scoops of dough.

5. Roll each scoop of dough lightly in powder sugar, forming a ball.

6. Place dough 2 in apart on baking sheets. (I used 2 sheets at a time)

7. Bake 8-10 min at 350. Mine took exactly 9 min. Take them out before they turn brown.

8. Allow to cool 1 min on pan and move cookies to a cooling rack to cool.
