Red Velvet Waffle Iron Cookies from JensFavoriteCookies.com - SO fast and easy to make, with a red velvet cake mix!Some days I like baking complicated desserts that require long amounts of time to prepare.  I like the love that goes into a good dessert like that.

And other days, I just don’t want to mess with it.  You know?

These are the days I love cake mix cookies.  Simple, delicious, very customizeable… cake mix cookies save the day.

And, as long as we are talking about baking heroes, I may as well bring up the waffle iron.  The waffle iron has been gaining ground in recent months, as a tool that is great for more than just waffles.  Did you know you can bake cinnamon rolls in that thing?

Upsides to using a waffle iron: you don’t have to heat up the oven and consequently the whole kitchen, and stuff cooks in half the time.  Downsides:  You can only cook a few at a time.

Even heroes have their flaws.

I always think waffle iron cookies are best eaten warm.  I like to let the icing melt onto the cookie.  That combination of warm cookie + cool icing is heavenly. Mmmmmm.

These cookies required some extra flour to make them stiff enough to bake in the waffle iron, but that same combination makes them turn rock solid within a day or so.  Trust me, you’re going to want to eat them warm.

There are lots of great waffle cookie recipes out there.  I love this one for Molasses Waffle Iron Cookies with Chocolate Frosting.  They are a delicious winter-flavor option.

But basically, waffle iron cookies are fabulous any time of year!

Red Velvet Sandwich Heart Cookies

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.

Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip

Red Velvet dip;  This easy to make dip tastes just like red velvet cake batter!

Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip from Jen's Favorite Cookies- this easy cream cheese dip tastes just like red velvet cake batter!Ever since we got Netflix, I’m getting hooked on one series after another.

Murder mysteries, mostly.  I watch one series from beginning to end, then spend a few days wishing there were more episodes, then I start over with a new series.

I was sort of devastated when I came to the end of “Dexter.”  That one will be hard to replace.

Lately, I’ve been watching old episodes of “Columbo.”  Peter Falk is classic.  I even found a few episodes I hadn’t seen before.

It’s a terrible habit.  I should space them out, I would probably enjoy them more if I didn’t watch one right after another.

I am the same way with food.  A couple weeks ago, I made some chicken salad for lunch, and enjoyed it so much I made it three more times within the next week and a half.

I’m a little sick of chicken salad now.

But my latest obsession is cake batter dip.  Lawd have mercy, I can’t stop myself. Continue reading “Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip” »

Red Velvet Sugar Cookies

red velvet cookiesA recipe for a soft, rolled red velvet sugar cookie with cream cheese frosting.

Source: I am Baker, who is obviously much more talented with a piping bag than I am.

Yield: this recipe is huge.  I ended up with around 5 dozen big 3″ cookies.

I kind of have a thing for red velvet.  I think it’s because it just comes with happy memories.  Red velvet cake has been a staple of our family birthday celebrations for decades.  It’s also tasty and pretty, so it’s no wonder I’ve developed this little obsession about it.  I have pinned several red velvet recipes, including red velvet whoopie pies, red velvet chocolate chip cookies, red velvet cupcakes, and of course, these red velvet sugar cookies.  Heaven.
