Are you feeling the pressure to bake up some Valentine's Day treats? And, everywhere you look, you're seeing red as in red velvet everything. Although I'm a fan of Red Velvet Cake, Red Velvet Brownies, and Red Velvet Cake Balls, I just didn't want to tackle any of those this weekend. Since I loved the Brownie Crackles I made at Christmas, I thought I would make Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies using a recipe that I adapted from the Duncan Hines web site. Cupid would be proud!
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
6 tbsp. butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. corn starch
1 box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and corn starch. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, place the cake mix, eggs, and butter. Stir together until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Form the dough into 1-inch balls and drop into the powdered sugar. Coat completely and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Cool on rack.
Mix in one tsp. of corn starch and set aside.
Drop and roll!
Cookies for your sweetheart or yourself!
Happy Valentine's Day!!
Kim...what a fabulous idea for a Valentine (or even Christmas) cookie! I love all-things red velvet :)ReplyDelete
Awesome quick and easy recipe. I might need to try these out! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I love this recipe! My sister loves red velvet and might have to make these for her!ReplyDelete
These did turn out to be good. I liked the mini chocolate chips in there. I would have loved to have had some white chocolate chips instead. They would have been gorgeous!ReplyDelete
They sure look beautiful and yummy!ReplyDelete
Pretty cookies!! If you are willing, you can share with my ongoing-''Valentine's Day Event''(till Feb 20th)ReplyDelete
I have lots and lots of Southern Living, Taste of Home, maybe even a Gooseberry Patch (as well as other) annual and holiday cook books at home that I need to get rid of. I just have way too many. I used to have an addiction to buying them. Some don't even have the spine cracked open. Do you know where I might be able to sell these, at a discounted price of course.ReplyDelete
