Red Velvet Cookies (for Santa!)

Merry Christmas Eve! This month has just flown by. We've had stuff going on pretty much every day and night recently, so I apologize for the lack of posts. The kids and I just made these super-easy cookies for Santa. I love that they are red and white like Santa's wardrobe. :)

1 box red velvet cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 cup white chocolate chips (0ptional)

Frosting Ingredients:

1 package cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup butter (softened)
2 teaspoons milk (I added a little more than this.)
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the cake mix, oil, and eggs. Stir in the white chips. Spoon dough onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are crackly. Let cool completely.

Frosting Directions:
In a mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add in the milk and vanilla and mix well. Pour in the sugar and mix until combined. Frost the cooled cookies. Store cookies in the refrigerator.
