Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip & Funfetti Cookies

I’ve got dip-mania.
I’m out of control, and I simply can’t stop!
I don’t know where this dough/batter dip concept has been all my life, 
but I can assure you– I am more than compensating for the lost time.
I really loved this one. 
Especially because it pairs so well with strawberries and apples. 
And fruit is kind of a refreshing change of pace for me :)
Although– to be completely honest with you, 
I didn’t try dipping fruit until I was scraping the last of it out of the bowl.
I ate most of the dip with cookies.
Funfetti sugar cookies.

  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 2 c. red velvet cake mix
  • 2-3 c. powdered sugar

  1. In a stand mixer, whisk together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Whisk in the red velvet cake mix, 1 cup at a time. Add 1-2 tbsp. of milk alternately, if necessary, to keep consistency smooth.
  3. Whisk in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, alternately with tablespoons of milk. Continue adding powdered sugar and milk until it reaches a consistency and a sweetness that you like.

Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Modified slightly from: Bake at 350
Ingredients:

  • 3 c. AP flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. butter, cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • Sprinkles, desired amount
Instructions:
  1. Combine all ingredients (except for sprinkles) in a stand mixer, and mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.
  2. (dough will look crumbly at first, but if you let it mix on its own long enough, it will come together just right).
  3. Fold in the sprinkles with a rubber spatula (or by hand as you roll the dough out).
  4. Roll the dough onto a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Cut out desired shapes. Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes.
