What's red and white and sweet with each bite? Red velvet cookies, silly! The next baking season is soon upon us, Valentines Day, and these sweet cookies are easy to make and can be decorated in so many ways, even dipped in chocolate for a double dose of yummy♥ness!
Red Velvet Cookies
1 pouch Better Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. sour cream
1 Tbsp. red food coloring
1 c. Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting
Mix sugar cookie mix, cocoa, butter, sour cream, food coloring, and egg in bowl till soft dough forms. Roll dough into 1 in. balls, place 2 in. apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 oven for 8-9 min. Cool. Frost cookies, sprinkle or decorate. Store in air tight container.
Betty never fails, does she! I've also seen whoopie pies made from 2 cookies with sweet white fluff in the middle.....a little bite of heaven! I think a batch or two of these are in order, soon! Happy baking!
