Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies with Cream Cheese filling

Making red velvet sandwich cookies is easy—and rewarding! I roll out dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie to minimize cleanup and eliminate the need to transfer cookies. Arefter you cut out the dough, just peel away the excess & bake!

Tips for easy cutout cookies

To create sandwiches, you can simply spread the cream frosting directly on the cookies or pipe it on by cutting the tip off of a sandwich bag, filling it with icing & squeezing it directly onto the cookie.

Best tip ever - use a sandwich bag to ice cookies! No icing tips or bags needed.
