Red Velvet Cookies

I totally love to eat red velvet cake, making it into a cookie would be fabulous! My sibling was looking for cookies to give as presents to friends, so she found these cookies. I promise you, these are to-die-for! (The rich, red color is so beautiful.)

The slight bitter taste of chocolate and chewy, crunchy edges will surprise you. Although the recipe uses a box, you will soon forget it once you taste the cookies melting in your mouth. A slight drizzle of melted white chocolate will make the cookies an absolute masterpiece. I hope you enjoy, and have a great time baking these mini masterpieces! Good luck!

Red Velvet Cookies

Yield: About 24 medium  Time: 11-17 minutes

Ingredients:

1 box red velvet cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)

2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 large eggs

1/2 cup olive oil (Or any oil)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the drizzle:

3/4-1 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. To make cookies, in a large bowl combine cake mix and flour. Whisk until clumps disappear. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together cake mix, flour, eggs, oil and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap. The dough will be oily. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. To assemble the cookies, take red velvet cookie dough and gently roll into a ball and place on prepared baking sheet. Scoop onto lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheets. Bake for 11-17 minutes or until the cookies begin to crackle. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-5 minutes. Remove from baking sheet to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

3. Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl or over a double-boiler. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cooled cookies. Let the cookies set until the chocolate hardens. Serve and enjoy!
