RED VELVET CHOCOLATE CHIP CRINKLE COOKIES

Are you a red velvet fan?
Moi? Absolument.
Cakes, donuts, cupcakes, pancakes, cookies, 
I'm all in.

My infatuation with velvet isn't limited to baking.
I love to.......
 Wrap my body in velvet.
Park my butt on velvet.
Slip my feet into velvet.
Cover my bed in velvet.
 Rest my head on velvet.  



 I've got so much velvet in my house, 
it's worthy of its very own post.
But today, I'm talking about velvet of the ingestible kind.  

(As a weird aside, I just realized that EXACTLY two years ago to the day,
I wrote a post about red velvet donuts.
I hereby declare February 9 as National Red Velvet Day). 


As a rule, I try not to post recipes that have been seen all over blog land,
but these cookies are SO good, I had to make an exception.
The recipe comes from the McCormick company,
the maker of the red food color, and vanilla extract, which is used in this recipe.
I've made their red velvet cake recipe many times, and
having tried several others, it is hands down, the best I've had.
(No, this post is not being sponsored).

 Based on my experience with the cake recipe,
I gave the cookies a chance.
Success!
Let's just say eating these cookies is the oral equivalent 
of wrapping a luxurious velvet scarf around your neck. 
A red velvet scarf, of course.

Aside from the fact that these cookies are soooo good,
they are super-easy!  
Just a note before you go and take out all of the ingredients from your pantry - 
the cookie dough must chill in the refrigerator for four hours,
so be sure to factor that into your baking plan.
That gives you a chance to chill, too,  
while your cookie dough does the same. 
You'll have enough time to watch National Velvet twice,
if I might make a suggestion.

So, here I am, on this cold and snowy day, 
 sitting on my brown velvet chair,
with my feet up on my animal print velvet ottoman,
wearing a purple velvet top,
and black velvet shoes,
eating red velvet cookies.   

Life is Good.

  2. YUM, truth be told my heart was singing and hopping reading this post GF. I can't wait to make these. Red Velvet cookies are a HUGE hit in this house and my family. The recipe I used last Christmas somehow vanished from my Pinterest board and the ones I made I didn't like.

    These will be my new recipe and made for next weekend for my brother and SIL.

    Sorry such a long response. Thank you Queen of Velvet. I anoint you.

  4. Well, you know I'm the unofficial cookie monster (ok, auto correct just filled in 'mobster'. It must know I'm Italian). I love velvet too! Someday, I want a deep blue velvet sofa. But I digress. I bought some kind of red velvet stuff from King Arthur a few years ago but never used it. Wonder if it's still good or if I'll be carted away by some emt? I'll take my chances.
