  1. 1 box (15 ounces) red velvet cake mix
  2. 2 large eggs
  3. 1/3 cup safflower oil
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 1 teaspoon kirsch
  6. ½ cup fresh cherries, pitted, finely chopped and drained
  7. ½ cup confectioners' sugar, for rolling
Cream Cheese-Cherry Filling
  1. 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  2. ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  3. 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  4. 1 teaspoon kirsch
  5. 4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  6. Light cream, as needed
  7. ½ cup fresh cherries, pitted, finely chopped and drained
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with baking paper. Set aside.
  1. Whisk together red velvet cake mix, eggs, safflower oil, vanilla, kirsch and chopped cherries until well-blended. If desired, chill dough for 10 to 15 minutes to make finished products flakier. Spoon dough and shape into 1-½-inch balls. Roll in confectioners’ sugar and arrange on prepared cookie sheets, about 2 to 3 inches apart. If desired, gently flatten using a buttered spatula. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until set. Allow to cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer onto wire racks to cool completely.
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in butter, vanilla and kirsch until incorporated. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar while beating until mixture is of spreading consistency. Dilute with cream if filling is too thick.
  2. Spoon filling into a piping bag fitted with a round top. Pipe (or spoon) filling on one cookie and cover with another, pressing gently to seal. Chill, if desired, until filling is set.
  1. You may replace cream cheese filling with any other sandwich filling of your choice.
  2. For a unique pie or cheesecake crust, crush these cookies finely and use as crust ingredient.
