Try this homemade Red Velvet Oreo recipe for Valentine's Day.


Makes 12 sandwich cookies



For cookies:

1 box Red Velvet cake mix

2 eggs

¾ cup shortening

For filling:

½ cup shortening

½ cup unsalted butter

1 tablespoon hot water

2 cups powdered sugar

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon almond extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, ¾ cup shortening, and cake mix until well combined.
  3. Roll the dough into 24 equal-sized balls and place them on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes (or until done.)
  5. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
  6. In another bowl, mix the butter, water, powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extracts, and ½ cup shortening until light and fluffy. Put the cream into a Ziploc bag and cut a small hole for piping.
  7. Once the cookies are cooled, flip one over and pipe about 2 tablespoons of filling. Place a second cookie on top and gently press them together.  Repeat until all the cookies are finished.

I have it on good authority that this is the best recipe ever made at the library ever ever, 10/10:
