Though my index finger was aching from the rotary cutter incident, it didn’t hurt enough to keep me from baking. I had read about these Red Velvet Cake Sandwich Cookies on Nic’s food blog (recipe here) and had to try them out. I love Red Velvet Cake, and these were little sandwich cookies with Mascarpone Cream Cheese Frosting squished in the middle. Yowza.
These little guys were fun to whip up. The cookies are rather soft and reminded me of muffin tops. I didn’t have mascarpone, so I made a basic cream cheese frosting with 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, 1/2 a brick of cream cheese, a splash of vanilla extract, and 2 cups of powdered sugar. These cookies are really perfect for frosting lovers who feel sad after they’ve eaten the top of a cupcake and have frostingless cake remaining. I was really happy to be able to share these with Action Hero Melissa
, who is up visiting from LA. Poor Sister Diane
can’t eat sugar, so she got nothing (hey Diane, I’ll use Splenda next time!).
Again, the recipe is here
