Red velvet cookie recipe

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. 

Red velvet Cookie recipe - with white chocolate chips

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


  1. In a mixing bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  2. Cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until combined.
  3. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add in red food coloring, yogurt, vanilla and vinegar.
  4. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Mix in white chocolate chips.
  5. Wrap the dough and chill for an hour to overnight. Defrost until firm enough to scoop. 
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. 
  7. Defrost the dough until you can scoop it out with a spoon. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
  8. 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. 
  9. 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.
