Vampire Blood Cookies

I told Zoulah not to do it -- it is too scary for my family-friendly blog -- but, she just couldn't help herself!  So here are some scary and scrumptious and naughtily delicious cookies. 
Zoulah screeched with delight when she saw the new Halloween header that our Fairy Blog Mother, Linda made for her today! It was a surprise!   Don't you just love it?  Thanks sooo much Linda!
Just three ingredients make up these cookies!   Made with the help of.....
Okay, so Beaulah, Purple Chocolate Home's kitchen witch is going to get a chuckle out of this recipe.  Joni and Jacqueline have squabbled, politely of course, about the best recipe for royal icing cookies.  Jacqueline uses this three-ingredient recipe, (using a white cake recipe) Joni uses this recipe.  The other day, the youngest Red Coucher made this  Red Velvet cookies with this recipe...and we all loved it. 
Yep, it is Betty to the rescue once again!  She has been trusted in the kitchen for many years.  Yes, even The Count approves of these....
He wants to take a bite.

So  Zoulah is going to give you the recipe for these three-ingredient cookies.
Red Velvet Cookies or Vampire Blood Cookies
1 box Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake mix
1/2 cup softened butter
1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put all ingredients in medium mixing bowl and mix well.
Form dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place on cookie sheets.  Bake for 9 minutes in oven.  Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes.  Then remove and cool on cooling rack.
Zoulah's Notes:  Our oven only takes 9 minutes.  Your baking time may be different.  You want these cookies to be soft and pillowy so don't overbake!  You could use a different brand of cake mix: we just have made quite a few batches of these with the Betty Crocker brand.
The Count invites you to take a bite!
Zoulah thanks you for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.
