This post includes a recipe for Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies plus ideas and recipes for other Cake Mix Cookie Flavor Combinations.

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Marshmallow Filling

The cookies in the pictures below were made with this Marshmallow Filling. 

To make a marshmallow filling, you will need:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cup Marshmallow Fluff
  • 3 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla 

Can you use one box of cake mix to make these cookies?

These cookies are made in one inch balls using a tablespoon ice cream scoop and make 48 cookies.  When you sandwich two cookies together, they will make 24 cookies.  Yes, you can use one box of cake-mix and half the other ingredients to make 12 sandwich cookies.  

Tips for the Perfect Sandwich Cookies

First Step: Combine Ingredients

Tips: For the Batter

  • Use room temperature eggs. 
  • Sift the cake mix.  Cake mixes have lots of lumps. 
  • Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. 
  • Don’t overmix the batter.  Mix until the ingredients are just combined. 

Batter in the mixing bowl

Can you substitute butter for oil in cake mix cookies?

Yes, you can substitute the same amount of butter for the oil in cake mix cookies.  When you use all butter, your cookies will be flatter.  The oil makes the cookies more cake-like. 

Second Step: Form Cookies

  • You can roll each cookie by hand into inch dough balls.  Your cookies need to be as close to the same size as possible to match two together to stuff. 
  • You do not want to use a large ice cream scoop.  They are just too big to eat with two regular size cookies plus the rich filling.

Use small ice cream scoop

Third Step: Bake Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

  •  

Tip: To make your cookies look even more beautiful, pipe your filling on one of the cookies using a star tip.  To fill your pastry bag with filling, set it up in a large tall glass or plastic cup. Only fill the pastry bag up halfway.  After folding the bag down to the top of the filling, be sure to squeeze the bag from the top and not the bottom.  

Fourth Step:  Marshmallow Cream Filling

Can you freeze these cookies?

Yes, you can!  Wrap each cookie individually in a couple of layers of plastic wrap.  To serve, let the cookies soften at room temperature for about 30 minutes before eating.
