These cookies taste just like the little red candies but with a soft cake-like texture. I make a batch for my husband every Valentine's Day and he loves them! These cookies are very simple to make. They are good by themselves or sandwiched with ice cream.
This recipe will make 2 to 4 dozen cookies depending on the size cookie cutter used. ENJOY!

1 box red velvet cake mix
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tablespoon natural cinnamon flavor
Flour (as needed for rolling out dough)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Bake at 325 for 8 to 12 minutes. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the cookie cutters used.

Serve and enjoy!
