Red Velvet Cookies


Well now that Thanksgiving has passed, we can focus on Christmas… Yeah!!!! and let me tell you that Christmastime has started at my house;-) All is now decorated, and as soon as Saturday came around my family and I were already cooking Christmas cookies in my kitchen. We searched for fun quick recipes and found one that was enjoyed so much that all the cookies were gone in one day: Red Velvet Cookies. It is no surprise really since one of people’s favorite dessert is Red Velvet Cake. They are almost as good and are definitely much quicker to fix. I found this recipe in the Cuisine Holiday Cookies.

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp of table salt, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1 egg, 1 tbsp of liquid red coloring, 1 tsp of distilled white vinegar, white Hershey’s cookies ( about 32).

First remove the paper-wraps of all the chocolate and place the chocolate into the freezer. In a bowl, mix together the flour, the cocoa, the baking soda and the salt.  Set aside. In a mixer bowl, place the sugar, brown sugar, oil and mix well until it becomes creamy. Add the egg and beat some more. Mix in the coloring and the vinegar. Add the flour mixture and mix well until it is well combined. Scoop tablespoons of that batter onto a silpat and bake for 10 minutes in a warm oven at 375. You should have about 3 dozens cookies. Remove the chocolate out of the freezer and place them on the cookies as soon as you take them out. Transfer the cookies off to a cooling rack et voila!!! How simple was that?!;-)

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
