You won ‘t believe that by using a cake mix you get these cookie-wiches. These make a great ‘sweet’ to add to your table of goodies when entertaining, especially with the entertaining season fast approaching.
- 1 pkg. white cake mix (Duncan Hines is good)
- 3 tbsp. dry Jell-o Raspberry Gelatin
- 1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping
- 1 egg
- 1 tub Cool Whip cream cheese frosting, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir all the ingredients together, except the frosting. Make sure it is well combined. The frosting will be quite stiff so don’t panic.
On parchment lined baking sheets, shape into balls, using 1 tsp. of the dough, placing 2 inches apart. They will spread out.
Bake for about 8 minutes until the edges of the cookies are set. For goodness sake, do not over bake). Cool on baking sheet for about 2 minutes then remove to cooling racks.
Thaw the cream cheese frosting and mix in a couple drops of red food colouring to make a soft pink filling. Fill 2 cookies with 1 tsp. filling to make the sandwich. Repeat with remaining cookies and frosting.
Keep refrigerated until ready to serve, then a light dusting of icing sugar will make them look so special.
What a great addition to the party trays at your Open House celebration or Wine and Cheese event.
Damn, you did it again!
