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....
Red Velvet Whoopie Pies:
I've made chocolate whoopie pies... Whoopie pie recipe from epicurious and filling recipe from recipezaar.
Very good whoopie pie filling recipe:
(Used butter and shortening in mine.)
Or you could adapt your cakester recipe to Red Velvet:
Red Velvet Cake Balls:
HTH with the Red Velvet cravings..
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.
yum yum! thanks so much! i'll have to try (them all! ) and see how it goes!
