Mixing in Unique Flavors

Mixing in Unique Flavors

It's always fun to throw in your own personal creative flair when you're baking with Duncan Hines. To customize cupcakes: add cinnamon and cayenne pepper into chocolate cupcake batter and frosting for a Mexican Cinnamon Chili Cupcake. For an Asian flavor, substitute sesame oil for vegetable oil in your cake mix and add powdered wasabi and ground ginger to your frosting -- you'll have a Wasabi Ginger Cupcake! To enhance Lemon Cupcakes, cut out a cone-shaped piece from the center of your cupcake and fill it with lemon curd, then frost with lemon cheesecake frosting.

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

So, the problem with this recipe is that I used parchment paper, and it stuck to the paper and DIDN'T want to come off. It was quite depressing. I added an extra egg like someone in the comments said, and it made a nice cookie DOUGH and it wasn't like a cake BATTER at all. My only concern is that it's not going to turn out like perfect little cookie slices. :( SO, I suggest using wax paper, NOT parchment paper.
