Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Stan & Philly came over to cook for us last Wednesday (Apr 29, 09). We got to eat Rib Eye Flambé…mmMMMMM. It was mesmerizing seeing the fire, although the smoke detector went crazy a bit. 😛

After dinner, we (mainly Philly) decided to make Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies. We made the cookie part using this recipe (which is supposed to be for ice cream sandwiches), and the filling from this recipe.

We didn’t have regular liquid food coloring, but only gel coloring. Because we don’t know what the liquid to gel conversion was, we decided to add the coloring last. We combined everything except the coloring, and Philly thought the color wasn’t right, and that it wasn’t dark enough. So I went a little overboard and put (in addition to the 1.5 Tbsp in recipe) two big scoops (2 Tbsp-ish) of cocoa powder. So after that…it looked a lot more brown than red……..
