Red Velvet Cookies

These cookies are luscious!

Red Velvet Cookie Recipe
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 1 beaten eg
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • Red food coloring
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 squares (1 oz. each) of melted unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 4 oz (1/2 pkg) softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 stick of softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • red sprinkles (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  • Cream together butter and brown sugar.
  • Add egg and blend well.
  • Put evaporated milk into a small bowl and stir in food color until a deep shade of red.
  • Add dry ingredients, alternating with the red evaporated milk.  (I used a mixer at this point to fully incorporate the red)
  • After batter is well combined, add the vanilla and melted chocolate and blend on low speed until completely combined.
  • Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat sheet and use a large tablespoon to spoon dough on sheets.
  • Bake at 375F degrees for 10 minutes, turning the sheet 180 degrees half way through baking.
  • Slide cookies off cookie sheet and allow them to cool completely.
  • On medium speed, beat together cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and salt until creamy.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth and slightly fluffy.  Can add an additional 1/4 cup more powdered sugar (to taste) for a thicker frosting. (taste as you add)
  • Place in a fitted with a decorating tip and pipe frosting on top of cooled cookies. Or use a ziplock back and snip the corner to frost.
