Red Velvet Cookies

This is my sister Karen's recipe. They are very good and can be decorated for any season.

Red Velvet Cookies

These are fun and very, very easy for a quick treat for Red Velvet Cake lovers.

1 Box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8 ounce package cream cheese -- softened
1/4 cup stick margarine or butter -- softened
2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. *** I added about 2 teaspoons of water to the batter. Directions:Mix all ingredients together. This will make a cookie dough. Roll into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten down slightly (depending on the thickness you desire). Bake at 375° until the tops crackle (about 8-10 minutes) or until desired doneness. Cool and then frost

** I would half the recipe for the frosting.(Karen's notes)
