For a fun Christmas-y take on the whoopie pie, try these red velvet cookie sandwiches. Besides cocoa powder and red food coloring, there’s also a bit of dry pudding mix included.

Flatten balls of dough into thick discs and bake seven to eight minutes at 350 degrees. Beat cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, milk and shortening for the filling and then smoosh between two cookies.

Decorate with sprinkles and serve with a nice, tall glass of milk.

8. Cranberry Bliss Bars

To copy the classic Starbucks treat, a little bit of grated ginger, some dried cranberries and white chocolate chips are combined into a standard batter and baked for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract make up the frosting, which is spread evenly over the whole baked piece. After drizzling white chocolate on top and sprinkling with the dried cranberries, cut into triangles and serve with coffee or tea.
