We are so excited to have Michelle from Cupcakes Cocktails & Kids share her red velvet cookie recipe!

Red Velvet 1 I can’t think of a sweeter way to spend Valentine’s Day than putting a smile on my children’s face.

These Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies are decadent but easy enough to bake the night before so your tiniest valentine can have a sweet surprise packed in their lunchbox.

Stack them up and pack them away in a cellophane bag, seal them {literally with a kiss} with these fabulous ‘Sealed with Smooches’ stickers.

Red velvet 2

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder*
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp milk or buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 5 tsp red food coloring
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs 1 at a time, blending until combined after each addition. Mix in milk, vanilla bean paste, lemon juice and red food coloring. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill 2 hours or until firm enough to shape into balls.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour powdered sugar into a bowl. Remove dough from refrigerator, scoop dough out and with buttered hands, shape into medium balls (about 2 1/2 Tbsp each). Roll cookie dough balls into powdered sugar and evenly coat. Transfer to Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets and flatten slightly, then bake in preheated oven 13 – 14 minutes. Allow to rest on cookie sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
  • *If you want them a little more chocolatey you can replace 2 – 3 Tbsp of the flour with 2 – 3 additional Tbsp of cocoa powder.
