Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling
After reading these reviews, I’m apparently much better at baking than I realized. I thought these turned out fantastic. I didn’t modify at all, and they didn’t flatten out in the least. I’m making these again for Valentine’s Day and will probably continue to seek out red-themed events so that I have more excuses to make them.
Not good. These cookies were simple to make, but taste was lacking. We had to add lots of extra food coloring because they were pink, not red. After baking and tasting, we threw them all out. I think its the baked cream cheese that just didn't taste very good to us and we normally like cream cheese. The cookies had a weird texture too and didn't have any flavor to them. Followed the recipe exactly.
Tender, festive cookie, that brightens any cookie tray! Others have commented about flat cookies, but I had no trouble with them going flat. Im guessing the "creaming butter and sugar"step is important to keep them the right shape. The dough tastes a bit bland because it has no salt, but the sweet and salty cream cheese filling makes up for that in the combined final product. The filling was lumpy, but a minute in the food processor smoothed it right out. Plan to add these to my Christmas cookies in future years!
it was really good the dough was a little dry but probably because we did not add any sugar, the icing was soo good but other than that this dessert was really good!
Made these cookies and they came out flat out of the oven. Next time I will try adding baking powder. The cookies had a good flavor just wasn't able to give to friends.
These are delicious! Ok you need some modifications. You need 1/2 tsp baking soda with the dough, and a 1/4 tsp salt. Otherwise you'll have flat flavorless cookies. Also, red food coloring isn't necessary. You also need to whip the cream cheese, and make sure it's completely softened before you mix it with liquids. I softened it in the microwave on 30% power for 15 seconds because I forgot to leave them out. I would add more chocolate next time.
My friend and her granddaughter made these with me, we were teaching Bella how to make cookies. She had so much fun by sticking her thumb in each cookie. We all thought these cookies were delicious. They freeze well and Bella wants to make these for Valentines Day. VFE
I didn't read any reviews until my cookies were in the oven. As I was giving these cookies to friends, I got nervous they'd be horrible. Not sure why people thought this recipe was bad. I thought they were a flavorful, tender bite - and I'm not a huge red velvet/cream cheese fan. I'd make them again.
