The red velvet cup cake is quite possibly the most trendy item in a bakery these days. So if red velvet cup cakes are so good, why not red velvet cookies?
I came across the idea for these cookies on the web. After trying several recipes with minimal success, I decided to try it on my own. I'm quite happy with results.
They are a perfect cookie to make over the holidays this year.
If you do make them, please leave a comment and let me know how they turned out.
