These Red Velvet Oreos are vibrant red sandwich cookies with a soft but firm bite reminiscent of the classic Oreo cookie you know and love. They are sandwiched together with a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium for about 1-2 minutes, until well combined. On the lowest speed, mix in the egg until well combined. Mix in the red gel food coloring and dry ingredients until well combined.
Mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Scoop out the red velvet cookie dough on a large piece of lightly floured parchment paper. Cover the top with plastic wrap and roll out the dough to ¼ -inch thickness. Chill for 2 hours.
Make the cream cheese filling by beating the cream cheese with the butter until smooth and well combined. Beat in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk with the cream cheese and butter until your desired consistency is reached.
Using a small tablespoon sized cookie scoop, apply your desired amount of cream cheese filling the bottom of half of the baked and cooled red velvet cookies. Top with the other half of the baked and cooled cookies to make red velvet sandwich cookies.
