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?
