And we’re back!
Did you miss me? Or did you hardly notice there was a brief reprieve in our 12 Baking Days of Christmas series? Well, I took the weekend to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. She is officially four years old now and is such a joy and light in our lives. Here she is all dolled up for her Christmas pageant.
Even though I didn’t actually take a break from baking — we made rainbow cupcakes for her celebration — I am rested and ready to finish up the last few days of holiday baking for you. Because, after all, if you’re not having fun baking… buy something from the store!
But you’re not going to want to do that with today’s recipe. Today I’m going to show you two ways to enjoy these red velvet cookies: (1) with cream cheese frosting and (2) with white chocolate chips. Both ways deliver an irresistible morsel of red deliciousness that are perfect for the holidays.
The centers are soft like cake while the bottoms have a nice crispness that you would expect with a cookie. Topped with a cream cheese frosting, these red velvet cookies are wonderful little bites of a holiday favorite.
I have to admit that the white chocolate chips are my favorite. I like the texture of the chips with the soft cookie, and the white chocolate drizzle on top makes it magical.
And they’re oh, so pretty that they’ll bring a festive sweetness to holiday parties or as a gift for coworkers and friends.
And the best part of all: they are super easy to make. Just check out the recipe below. Enjoy! — v.
