Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

I don’t know what’s come over me.  I don’t even like red velvet.

I do like cookies, though, and I’m hard pressed to turn one down, no matter the flavor.

Even better, these came together in a flash.  Yes, I used a cake mix for the base.  I happen to love cake mix cookies and I am unapologetic about it.  🙂

These cookies came out so soft and chewy; but I have to admit, they were a little plain for my liking.

So I added even more powdered sugar.

And about a cup of white chocolate chips to the batter. Because everything is better with more chocolate, yes?

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat and set aside.
  2. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place powdered sugar and cornstarch in shallow dish. Mix with a fork to blend.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, and cake mix; mix by hand until a dough forms. Fold in white chocolate chips, if desired.
  4. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar.
  5. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

      These were pretty good, for red velvet! 🙂 I sent most of ’em to work with my husband, and they got rave reviews.

      Haha, you know I am NOT a red velvet fan at all, but these were pretty tasty. And you’re too kind about the pictures. I thought they ended up looking a little busy, but I didn’t have time for a redo, so…your support means a ton!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
