Notes

Do you like soft cookies? Do you like cream cheese? Do you like red velvet? If so, then these cookies are for you! As soft as biting into a marshmallow, these sweet treats will melt in your mouth! The toughest part about making these is making the cookies about the same size. Otherwise, the sandwiches wouldn’t look balance if the cookies were all different shapes and sizes. Makes about 13 large whoopie pies.
