Strawberry Heart Cookies From A Cake Mix

As we gear up for Valentine's Day, I wanted to test a new recipe.  I found this one on Pinterest and it sounded good. The cookies were also really easy: just three ingredients plus a cream cheese frosting.

After we mixed together the cookie ingredients (cake mix, eggs and shortening), we rolled them into small balls and pinched the ends to form a heart shape.

As the cookies cooled, we made frosting, then iced the cookies and sandwiched them together.

These were so fun and easy to make and look festive for the holidays.  I think the cookies would also work great as a single layer, iced with sprinkles, like a Christmas sugar cookie.

Here's the recipe.  It's by Mique Provost.

Ingredients for cookies:
Strawberry cake mix
2 eggs
¾ cup shortening (don’t use margarine)

Ingredients for frosting:
8 oz cream cheese
½  stick butter, softened
2 t vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Mix the cookie ingredients together.  Roll into balls.  Pinch one end to make a heart shape.  Bake for 8 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Cool. 

Mix frosting ingredients.  Add powdered sugar slowly to form taste and consistency you prefer. You may need only 3 cups.  Frost cookies and sandwich together.
