Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting: delightfully chewy, lightly chocolatey sugar cookie made with red velvet pudding.
So, I’m like half a year behind the whole Blogger Holiday Prep. I’m in a bunch of Facebook Groups for Bloggers, and I think I may be the only person who hasn’t posted a Valentines themed post or recipe. My apologies.
For some crazy reason, I started a second blog at the beginning of last month and between starting a new term of college online, this blog, the other blog, and my two wonderfully time-consuming children [who knew?], I have been slacking a little. But I’m here now, sharing a super yummy recipe that’s easy-peasy. Can I also brag a little on my photography skills? Check out last year’s Valentines Day recipe! Oh, lord!
These Red Velvet Cookies are LIT [I think I’m using that slang correctly]. They’re very similar to my favorite Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe in texture. The only difference is that I replaced the brown sugar with white sugar, and they obviously don’t have chocolate chips.
By the way, have I mention how much I freaking love my KitchenAid Stand Mixer? Ladies, it’s almost Valentines Day. If you don’t have one of these. Gift one to yourself, like now. Gentlemen, if your wife doesn’t have one of these to display proudly on her kitchen counter, get her one, like now.
Instead of trying to cream together butter and sugar with a hand mixer while simultaneously combining all my dry ingredients, I just set my KitchenAid on a low speed with the paddle attachment and more or less forget about it. I’m telling you, it’s love!
This recipe is as simple as that. Cream your butter and sugar, combine your dry ingredients separately, and then slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Add a little red food coloring, roll out one inch balls, bake for 10 minutes, let them cool, and then add some frosting.
