Frosted Red Velvet Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I made these to take as a Valentine's day treat and they got rave reviews. I will definitely be making them again. I used homemade cream cheese frosting and piped a heart on each one.
I made these gluten free and the cookie was so good and soft. The crunchy chocolate chips were a nice compliment. I did not add frosting because the store bought kind I was going to use tasted fake so I left it off. Will make these again and leave out the red food color next time.
Can these cookies be frozen (without icing)?
Don't understand the complaints about using prepared frosting. As long as it's good, I personally don't mind a shortcut here and there when baking!
I have tried a lot of red velvet cookies since they became popular a few years ago. This one is a winner! The sour cream gives them flavor and makes them moist. Highly recommend!
I give these 5 stars for presentation and taste, although without the frosting maybe 3 stars. Anyway, they are kind of fussy to make. The batter is very sticky.
Very chocolatey. Also made a cream cheese frosting
Delicious! Made these for my hubby on Valentines Day. Like most of the other comments said, it seemed a little crazy to buy a can of frosting after taking the time to make homeade cookies, so I used a cream cheese recipe I like from another cookie recipe. I put a Hershey's kiss on top of each cookie!
The Cream Cheese frosting is easy to make from scratch. Use ¼ cup softened butter, 4 ounces of softened cream cheese, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 cups confectioner's sugar. Mix the butter with the cream cheese and the vanilla extract until it is smooth. Add the confectioner's sugar in half-cup increments until the frosting is of proper spreading consistency. (You'll use all, or almost all, of the sugar.) Give the remaining frosting in bowl to your favorite person.
I was looking for something different and special for Valentine cookies and this is IT. I made my own frosting and sprinkled Wilton's special hearts mix on them and they are beautiful . And yummy. Thanks for the recipe and your great timing. I hate making cut out cookies and this was so easy. Thank you , thank you, thank you.
