Red velvet cookies might just be my new favourite! These cookies are soft and chewy with a gorgeously delicate crust and a delicious chocolate and vanilla flavour. Beautiful. Stunning. Pure heaven.
I actually tried these in the run-up to Valentine’s Day. Because what better way to share the love than with baking for those dearest to you, right? 😇
Regardless, these (not so!) little beauties are fabulous always!
Whenever I think of red velvet cake, I always think of it accompanied by a beautifully smooth cream cheese icing. I knew I didn’t want to put any icing on these cookies but was still keen to set off the vibrant red against something. So I decided to include a generous amount of white chocolate chips instead to be the contrast as the cream cheese icing would have been. Yum!
These red velvet cookies are really quick to put together too. In just an hour you can have your cookies mixed, chilled, baked and cooling. You can, if you’re anything like me, eat them soon after they’re out of the oven (yes I’m impatient!). But, when I have been patient, the resulting chewy cookie with a delicate crust has truly been worth the wait!
And just in case you hadn’t noticed, these cookies require a little longer in cooling time. This is a really important step, as it allows the cookies to continue to cook slowly on the baking sheet as they cool and set. So you get cooked (not raw!) cookies with a perfect chew every time. Trust me on this one, friends, you don’t want to skip this bit!!
If cookies are your heaven, you NEED to try these. Along with my lemon drizzle, these are my hubby’s favourites!
Thanks for stopping by, as always. Happy baking! 😊
