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!!
