Red Velvet White Chip Cookies

These cookies are soft, chewy and taste as good as they sound. The first time I baked them, I took them to an aunt's yard sale. Now they’re my go-to for any special event. —Samantha Gstalder, Montoursville, Pennsylvania

    Definitely NOT "clickbait"- you either did something wrong, or your ingredients were sub-standard if these failed. Family favorite for Christmas cookie tray for many years. Have NEVER had them burnt on outside and gooey/ unbaked inside. Always turn out beautifully; tender yet chewy, with crisp edges. It is a bit sweet for me, but rest of family loves them! (Not a sweets person.) Highly recommend this recipe.Thanks for submitting it!

    We're not exactly crazy about red velvet anything, but these were very tasty and good!

    These are one of my family’s favorite cookies! They always turn out perfect - I’ve never had a problem when baking these.

    Clickbait. The cookies were uncooked in the middle and burnt on the outside not to mention it was gooey to the touch. I followed the recipe how it told me to and it still ended up like this, would not recommend. C´mon man, I just wanted some cookies.

    If you are looking to make the traditional southern Red Velvet Cookie, this recipe is not the one you want to use. I made this recipe, following the directions exactly. The cookies which came out of my oven were dark brown, with an inside which was not completely baked. I do not recommend using this recipe.

    My guys liked these. I made them for the holidays. I found them a tad too sweet. Will go back to making dark chocolate white chip, unless specifically requested.

    Awesome cookies! I added 1 cup white chocolate chips to the batter and baked for 7 minutes.
