Red Velvet Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 5 drops red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


Red Velvet Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use parchment paper or a silpat mat to line a baking sheet. 
  • Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are blended.
  • Add in the egg, vanilla and red food coloring and beat until combined.
  • Add in flour, cocoa, cornstarch, salt and baking soda. Mix until all combined.
  • Scoop out 24 equal cookie dough balls (they should be 1 TBSP of dough – I recommend a 1 TBSP cookie scoop). Slightly flatten each dough ball with your hand.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet – 12 cookies to a sheet. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 8 minutes and then let cool on the baking sheet for an additional 10 minutes. Remove cookies to cooling rack. NOTE: If you decide to make the bigger cookies, you’ll need to bake them for 12 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • In stand mixer, cream butter and cream cheese for about 2-3 minutes until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar and mix on high for about 3 minutes until smooth.
  • Put the frosting in a piping bag with a star tip OR you can put the frosting in a gallon size Ziploc bag and cut off one corner of the bag. Use the frosting bag to pipe frosting in a spiral on top of the cooled cookies.
