Red Velvet Cookies Recipe is a holiday favorite for Christmas or Valentine’s Day. Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like Red Velvet batter. I fell that you can find red velvet recipes from coffee syrups to yogurt flavors. It is the newest fad in cooking I guess. This year’s cookie exchange recipe was inspired from a visit to Panera Bread. Check the other amazing red velvet donuts and red velvet cakes.
These Red Velvet cookies were really easy to make. I have found that most red velvet recipes are not very moist but I like the addition of white chocolate chips. This gave them a little extra texture and flavoring.
