Now, if you know me, then you know I don't like cream cheese (or whipped cream or sour cream). I just can't stand the taste! I also LOVE red velvet cake and usually when I have it, I just scrape off the icing. This is where my brilliant plan for mix & match comes in. I've made these "cupcakes" (also from How Sweet It Is) a couple of times now. The first time I made them, I was too tired to make the icing and I enjoyed them so much, that the second time I made them I just didn't want the icing. But I thought that icing might go nicely with the red velvet cookies I was getting ready to make. So I got to baking...

I think next time I make these cookies, I'll make them bigger and skip the icing all together. And just as proof that I don't like icing...these boutique cupcakes I got from the cupcake truck last week suffered my icing scraping too!
