Introduction: RED HOT Valentine Cookies

RED HOT Valentine Cookies

Step 1: How to Make RED HOT Valentine Cookies

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!

INGREDIENTS
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.

Step 2:

Mix the cake mix, baking powder, cinnamon flavor, eggs, and oil in a bowl until well blended and a solid dough forms. 

Step 3:

Place the dough on a floured surface and sprinkle with flour.
Roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness.
Use flour as needed to prevent sticky dough.

Step 4:

Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes and place on a cookie sheet. I line my sheets with parchment paper but it is not necessary.

Step 5:

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

Remove and cool on the cookie sheet 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. 
Serve and enjoy!
