Red Velvet Cream Cheese Cookies

Here is a fun adaption on the Oreo Cookie recipe I posted. Perfect for Valentines Day or Christmas. 

Cookie Ingredients:

1 Pkg Red Velvet Cake Mix (if you don't have that any moist chocolate cake mix will do)
1/2 cup crisco (translation for aussies.. shortening or a type vegtable oil)
2 Beaten Eggs
Filling Ingredients:
8 0z Cream Cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp Vanilla
Heat oven to 350 F.
Combine all the cookie ingredients in a bowl.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Take a small piece of the dough and roll it into a ball. It should be the size of a dime - or $1.00 Aussie dollar.
Do a test batch placing 1 or two balls on the tray. Cook for approximately 10 minutes. Dough should flatten out and deflat upon removing from teh oven as well. Use this time to exactly measure how long your oven requires to cook these cookies.
Place balls on tray and space approximately 2-3 inches apart.
Remove from oven once cooked and allow them to sit and cool before removing from the tray.
Allow cookies to completely cool before adding filling.
Filling Directions:
Soften cream cheese and butter. With an electric mixer whip the cream and butter together, add in Vanilla essence, slowly add the powdered sugar.
Place in fridge while you wait for your cookies to cook and cool.
To Assemble: Fill a large zip lock bag with the end cut or a piping bag and pipe cream cheese onto the top. Add sparkly sprinkles for an extra effect and crunch.
