These Red Velvet Oreo Gooey Butter Cake Cookies are just 5 ingredients to make and are so good you’ll be making them over and over again!
Now that the Super Bowl is over, (go Patriots!) let’s talk about Valentine’s Day!!
You guys, I’m the WORST when it comes to cute and crafty things for Valentine’s Day. I’m lucky if I can even get to the store to buy my kids a heart shaped box of chocolates. But what I am good at, is making super easy treats like these Red Velvet Oreo Gooey Butter Cake Cookies.
After all, they’re just 5 ingredients! So easy!
If you’ve ever made a gooey butter cake before you know how dang delicious it is. I’ve taken the same concept for a gooey butter cake and made it into a delicious, bite-size cookie!
You’ll want to start with some Challenge Butter and Challenge Cream Cheese. Did you know that Challenge’s butter and cream cheese go from the farm to the fridge in just 2 days? It doesn’t get any fresher than that! Only the best!!
Remember to look for the elk on the package, so you know you got the good stuff!
You’ll beat the cream cheese and butter together until nice and fluffy, then add an egg and a red velvet cake mix.
This will become your cookie dough. It’ll be a little sticky, so don’t worry. Fold in some chopped up Oreo cookies and then pop it in the fridge to chill for just a little bit.
Scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake them for just 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookie.
My cookies were rather large because I used an ice cream scoop to them, so I baked mine for 12 minutes. If you use a smaller scoop you’ll want to stop at 10 minutes.
The cookies will be soft when they’re done baking so carefully place them on a wire rack to finish cooling.
Once they’re cool you’re going to want to show some self control. These cookies are seriously so good.
You can’t stop at just one.
So soft and gooey in the center, with little bits of cookies and cream throughout. Not too sweet, just right!
You’re going to love these, and since they’re red and all… perfect for Valentine’s Day! 😉
