  • 1/2 bar {4 ounces} cream cheese softened
  • 1 stick {8 tbsp} butter softened
  • ¾ cup Dixie Crystals light brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 12 Red Velvet Oreos crushed
  • 3-4 Red Velvet Oreos broken into small pieces {for topping}

Instructions

  • Add cream cheese, softened butter, and brown sugar to a mixer bowl.
  • Blend on medium speed until smooth.
  • With the mixer running, slowly add flour, a little at a time until fully combined.
  • If you want a more pronounced red color, add 10-20 drops red food coloring and stir in.
  • Pour crushed Oreos into the bowl and gently stir in by hand.
  • Scoop the dough ball onto a sheet of plastic wrap and wrap up.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Scoop and roll batter into small balls and place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Gently press to flatten cookies if you like them more flat and large. If you want small round cookies leave them as balls.
