for some reason, i feel like we haven’t posted red velvet in a while. or maybe that’s just me. either way, I saw a picture of these cookies and was immediately drawn to them. i like red velvet on its own, but sometimes find the flavor not sweet enough, so white chocolate chips seemed like the perfect solution. and they were – these
cookies were delicious! they had a perfect blend of flavors and the color came out just right (after I had put a ton of red food coloring into the dough). we made them for my church’s international dinner and everyone loved them (we even saw one lady take six!).
Red Velvet and White Chocolate Chip Cookies – from scratch
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder
Red food coloring liquid or gel (gel recommended, I use Americolor)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the food coloring until you reach the desired color. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder, mixing until thoroughly combined. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the white chocolate chips.
Using a cookie scoop, place the dough two inches apart on the baking sheet. Gently flatten with the bottom of a measuring cup. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly crispy around the edges.
