The kids and I absolutely loved these cookies. They are just like biting into red velvet cupcakes. My only dislike, using so much red food coloring. Well its OK to make it once in a while I guess. Try it, I'm sure you will love it.
Makes 2 dozen cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp gel red food coloring
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp yogurt
- 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice
- 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- In a mixing bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
- Cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until combined.
- Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add in red food coloring, yogurt, vanilla and vinegar.
- Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Mix in white chocolate chips.
- Wrap the dough and chill for an hour to overnight. Defrost until firm enough to scoop.
- Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
- Defrost the dough until you can scoop it out with a spoon. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
- If you like the cookies flat, remove it at 8 minutes and flatten the tops of the cookies with a spoon. I like it crisp on the outside and slightly undercooked on the inside.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets a few minutes. Cool completely. enjoy with a glass of cold milk.
