Red Valentine cookies

sharing one of my favorite Valentine's day cookies soo easy to make .
enjoy everyone :)

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

1 package red velvet cake mix
(I used duncan hines)
2 - eggs
1/2 - cup oil
(or butter flavored shortening)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Add oil and eggs to cake mix and blend together. Roll dough into balls (a little larger than a quarter). Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet (until warm). Remove cookies from sheet and place on cooling rack.To assemble the cookies, in a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch, round tip (you can always use a zip lock bag with a round tip or just use a butter knife)add about a tablespoon of filling into the center of one cookie. Place another cookie similar in size on top of the filling. Lightly press, to work the filling evenly to the outsides of the cookie. Continue this process until all the cookies have been sandwiched with cream.
Creamy Cream Cheese Filling Recipe:1 - 8oz package philly cream cheese
3-4 cups - confectioner's sugar (depending on desired consistency)
1 - tsp vanilla extract
Cream butter and add cream cheese and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add confectioner's sugar slowly until you reach your desired consistency. If the mixture is to thick add a bit of milk until you have the consistency you want.

Homemade Vanilla Wafers

Sharing one of my favorite Vanilla wafer recipes,so easy to make and soo yummy,

enjoy everyone,and have a great weekend.Cilla

Homemade vanilla wafers

7 ounces all-purpose flour

(if you don't have a kitchen scale, that's about 1 3/4 cups)

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

4 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature (about 1/2 cup)

3 1/2 ounces vanilla sugar (about 2/3 - 3/4 cup, and I didn't have vanilla sugar, but I did use turbinado sugar )

1 large egg

4 teaspoons vanilla extract (personally, I would put more in next time)

1 tablespoon whole milk
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Cream the butter and vanilla sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl after 1 minute. Add the egg and incorporate on medium speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl. Add the vanilla extract and milk and blend on low speed for 15 seconds. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed just to incorporate. Scoop the batter in teaspoon-sized balls and arrange them on 2 parchment paper-lined half sheet pans, approximately 35 cookies per pan. (I only got about 55 cookies and since these are made with all butter, I refrigerated each pan for about 10 minutes before baking.) Use the heel of your hand to slightly flatten each ball. (I forgot to do this and they turned out fine.) Bake until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes, rotating pan halfway for more even baking. Remove the pans to a cooling rack to cool completely before removing the cookies from the pan.

Enjoy :)
