Red velvet Valentine CookiesCourse: DessertCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
An easy and cute treat for valentine’s day.
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp unsalted butter (125g)
1/2 cup brown sugar (100g)
1/3 cup sugar (75g)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp or more of red food coloring
2 cups flour (270g)
1 tbsp cocoa powder (15g)
1 + ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
White chocolate for the “hearts” or white chocolate chips
- Using a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy.
- Add in the egg, vanilla and a little bit of red food coloring, and mix until combined, remember to scrape the bowl down and mix again.
- Mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. *If you’re JUST using white chocolate chips (not making the hearts) mix them in the dough in this step*
- Roll the dough into 20 cookie dough balls (around 1+½ tbsp each one).
- Let the cookie dough balls rest in the fridge for about an hour or overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 356F/180C.
- Carefully transfer to a baking sheet with parchment/wax paper and bake for 9-12 minutes.
- While the cookies are baking, make the chocolate hearts using melted white chocolate and a heart shaped silicone mold, leave them in your freezer (I found these silicone molds on amazon and they have the one I used).
- Once baked, leave them to cool on the tray for about 15 minutes and after that you can add the heart chocolates.
- Let them cool for 10 minutes more and ENJOY!
