Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies

Red Velvet Cookies

Did you guys watch the Super Bowl last night? Did you eat wings and nachos and lots of dip? We learned that Winnie really likes pretzel bites. Not surprising since her favorite food so far is pizza. Pizza and pretzel bites, she is definitely my child. Thankfully, the month of January and its horrible weather is behind us. It is time to move on to February and Valentine’s Day. Hopefully some better weather too.

Today we have a Valentine’s Day cookie for you. I took these to a little get together with my friends a few weeks ago and they flew off the plate. Using store bought cake mix for cookies is one of my favorite tricks. Saves time and the cookies always come out delicious.
