do these need to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese frosting?

I am always a food poisoning freak. I am always taking extra precautions, just in case, because I never want anyone to get sick.

With these cookies, they are actually more delicious, when they are refrigerated. They honestly taste better, and the cream cheese frosting tastes more delicious, cold.

We definitely recommend refrigerating them. They will be fine sitting out for an hour or so, when serving, but refrigerating them is definitely recommended.

why did my cookies go flat after i took them out of the oven?

My cookies did go flat a little after taking them out of the oven and cooled. However, this will depend greatly on what kind of cake mix you use.

Most of them will have the same ingredients, but they could use more or less baking soda or flour, which helps the cookies grow up and out.

You can always add a dash extra to your dough, but even if they are a little flat, they will still be delicious.

  • 1 (15.25 oz) box of red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Frosting
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar (depending on the consistency you like)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix together the cake mix, eggs, and oil in a large bowl. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops start to crack, about 8 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, butter, milk, and vanilla. Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing well with each addition. If consistency is too stiff, add more milk.
  5. Spread a generous amount of icing on the bottom of a cookie, sandwich it with another cookie, pressing firmly so that the icing comes all the way out to the edge. Repeat with the remaining cookies.


Want to make these cookies even yummier? I added 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut to my frosting the second time I made them and it was so good. If you love coconut, I highly recommend it!

  1. I made these last week and they were sooo yummy! The two comments I'd make: (1) the filling didn't turn out as thick as I thought it would. It wasn't actually runny, but it was somewhat runny and I had to put the whoopee pies in the fridge after I sandwiched them so the filling wouldn't ooze out the sides. I'm in Texas, so the humidity may have had something to do with that, I don't know. (2) The next time I make these, I think I'll cut the filling recipe by 1/3 or so because I had a ton left over.

    But yes, these were so good and were a big hit!!
    • Hi Shirley, This recipe is very similar to our Homemade Oreo Cookies. They both use a cake mix. With the oreos, you add 2 eggs and 3/4 cups shortening to the cake mix. Where the red velvet cookies call for 1/2 cup veg oil. I'm sorry they are going flat. Do they looker thinner than our cookies in the picture? Only mix until combined. Try no extra mixing. I'm just trying to pull out all of the tricks I know for flat cookies. :)
