my cousin loves red velvet and i was hoping to make something for christmas dinner incorporating red velvet, but i don't want to make a cake. does anyone have a t&t recipe for red velvet cookies - without using a red velvet cake mix? (we can't get it around here).

thanks so much!

ps, how many times do you think i can use the phrase 'red velvet' in one post? lol

Red Velvet Cookies from scratch:

If you can get German Chocolate cake mix, you can make Red Velvet cake mix cookies by simply adding some red food coloring.

FYI, I have just purchased a traditional Southern cookbook that has a Red Velvet cake that has no cocoa in it at all.....which I thought was VERY interesting.

So it would appear you could use a white cake mix, add red food coloring and have a different version of Red Velvet cake mix cookies.

If you're feeling like something different....

I've made chocolate whoopie pies... Whoopie pie recipe from epicurious and filling recipe from recipezaar.

Very good whoopie pie filling recipe:

Or you could adapt your cakester recipe to Red Velvet:

There's also a recipe on my blog site (Midwest Crafts and Recipes) for red velvet cookies. One of the ingredients on my blog calls for cream cheese frosting (ready-made) but I personally prefer to make my own.
