I’m all about the “pretty” and this cookie  fits the bill perfectly. It’s a take off from my Mother’s Chocolate  Crinkle Cookies that she always had on hand during the Christmas holidays.I combined another recipe to come up with this version that I call Red Velvet Crinkle Cookie.  Enjoy this yummy recipe. I promise your guests will love it.

 

Xmas Red Velvet Cookies
Yields approx.: 30 cookies
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Ingredients

• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder*
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 3/4 tsp salt
• 3/4 cup unsalted butter , softened
• 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
• 3 large eggs
• 1 Tbsp milk or buttermilk
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla
• 2 tsp lemon juice
• 5 tsp red food coloring
• 1 cup white chocolate chips
• 1 cup powdered sugar

In a large bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds, set aside.

With an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy.
Mix in eggs 1 at a time, blending until combined after each addition. Mix in milk, vanilla bean paste, lemon juice and red food coloring.
With Mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill 2 hours or until firm enough to shape into balls.

Pour powdered sugar into a bowl.
Remove dough from refrigerator, scoop dough out and with buttered hands, shape into medium balls (about 2 1/2 Tbsp each).
Roll cookie dough balls into powdered sugar and evenly coat. Transfer to Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets and flatten slightly, then bake in preheated oven 13 – 14 minutes.
Allow to rest on cookie sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.Store in an airtight container.

****If you want them a little more “chocolatey” you can replace 2 – 3 Tbsp of the flour with 2 – 3 additional Tbsp of cocoa powder
