Red velvet cookies heart shaped;  These easy cookies are sandwiched with chocolate frosting.  A perfect Valentine treat!  Red Velvet Cookies heart shaped.

Red Velvet Heart Sandwich Cookies from Jen's Favorite CookiesRed Velvet is all the rage these days, but I want you to know that when I was a kid, my mom would make Red Velvet Cake for special occasions.  Red velvet cake was all I knew, I could never have conceived of red velvet cookies, pancakes, crepes, fudge, brownies, dips, or any of the hundreds of other amazing creations I have seen lately.

My mom even had a heart shaped cake pan, and sometimes we would have a beautiful, heart shaped red velvet cake with pink frosting on Valentines Day.

My mom is kind of the best that way.  She’s great at making holidays fun, and giving little gifts she knows you’ll enjoy.

I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll go all out on a big red velvet cake for my kids this year.  I’m pretty lazy, after all.  Maybe I’ll tell them that only kids with good grades get red velvet cake.

Or maybe I’ll tell them that only adults get red velvet cake.  That’s even better.

    Ha! Let those kids fend for themselves, Jen. That’s what we did when we were younger. Make them force their friends to buy them pity treats on Valentines. These lovely red velvet heart sammiches (YUM on that frosting!) is definitely for adults only, cause we pay the bills and make the world go round! We deserve it! Thanks so much for hosting again. Our Holiday Food Party is my favourite blogging event and you do such an incredible job organizing us, putting all this together and creating the gorgeous collage. You deserve extra servings of these!

    You’re mom is so sweet! Can she bake me a cake? Or can you just send me cookies? I swear at first the texture of the cookies almost looked like red velvet brownies. Honestly I’ll take them all.

    I’m a recent red velvet convert….so it’s all new to me! But I love discovering the many recipes that can become ‘red velvetized’! These sandwich cookies are so pretty and perfect for any sweet occasion! Lovely photos, too! : )

    Lucky! My mom only ever made chocolate or yellow cake from a box growing up. I can’t remember if we’ve ever had red velvet. I love these sandwich cookies. Two for one serving 😉
