2 dozen sandwich cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box Duncan Hines® Red Velvet Premium Cake Mix

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 (16 ounce) container Duncan Hines® Creamy Home-Style Vanilla Frosting

Directions

  1. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place cake mix, egg, cooled butter and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until well blended and dough is formed.

  2. Form dough into a smooth 12-inch log on wax paper or parchment making sure it is even in thickness end to end. Wrap in wax paper; seal in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets. Unwrap dough log and set on wax paper. Using a sharp knife, cut into 48 slices about 1/4- inch thick. Place on cool baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

  4. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

  5. Spread frosting on half the cookies. Top each frosted cookie with another cookie. Gently press together.

Tip:

For best results, bake one baking sheet at a time. If baking two sheets together, rotate pans halfway through baking.
