Week 19: Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I decided to go with another cake-themed cookie this week. I needed to mix it up a little with something different. Plus, part of my sister’s wedding cake was red velvet, and my family and I celebrated my sister’s birthday today along with Mother’s Day.

This is honestly very similar to a recipe that is called the White Chip Chocolate Cookies, with the main difference being the red food coloring.

If you decided to make this recipe, make sure you have a few hours to make it, since you need to chill the dough for 1-2 hours before baking.

The utter magnificence that is red velvet in cookie form.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cups (189g) all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
  • 4 tsp (6g) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp (heaping) salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp liquid red food coloring, or 1 1/2 tsp gel red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until combined.
  3. Mix in egg. Add in red food coloring, vanilla and vinegar.
  4. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Mix in 3/4 cup white or semi-sweet chocolate chips (set aside remaining 1/3 cup to use after baking).
  5. Cover bowl and chill dough 1 – 2 hours until dough is nearly firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees near the end of dough chilling.
  6. Scoop dough out and shape into balls about 1 1/2 Tbsp each (or 28g). Transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet spacing 2-inches apart.
  7. Bake one sheet at a time (keep remaining dough chilled and repeat process), until cookies appear set on the edges but slightly under-baked in the center, about 10 – 11 minutes.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and gently press some of the remaining white chocolate chips into tops.
  9. Let cool on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
