Red Velvet Woopies
1 pkg. Pillsbury Red Velvet Cookies
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. finely chopped nuts
Bake cookies according to package directions. While cooking, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and nuts. After cookies have cooked and cooled, spread 6 with cream cheese mix. Top each with remaining cookies.
Comments: I bought the package of Red Velvet cookies because they were on sale. I'm not normally a prepackaged cookie maker but this was a sale I couldn't pass up. When I started to make them I thought about Red Velvet cake and how I could incorporate an icing. I actually thought about just sprinkling the nuts into the softened cream cheese but ended up adding just a little sugar. After tasting one of these goodies, I could have gone either way. These cookies turned out delicious! And they are just in time for Valentine's Day.
