Red Velvet Cookies

I’m not going to lie, I would never choose red velvet if there were ever flavours that I could choose from however, it is a flavour I haven’t done yet so why not give it a go. These cookie also have a big valentines feel to them due to the red colouring of them.

I did try a different recipe when I first made this but it was extremely sticky and did not cook well. After looking at quite a few different recipes which were all similar in the ingredients they used, the first recipe I used defiantly was the odd one as most recipes use buttermilk however the first recipe I used didn’t have a buttermilk. I feel like buttermilk is a big key in this particular recipe.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 4. Grease two baking trays with butter.
  2. Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add the egg, red colouring and buttermilk and beat until just combined.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda into the bowl and add the vinegar. Beat until combined, then stir through the white chocolate chunks.
  4. Place spoonfuls of cookie dough onto the baking trays, allowing room for the cookies to spread, four on each tray should work well. Flatten each cookie a little with the back of the spoon, and bake for approximately 13 minutes.
  5. Leave the cookies to set on the tray for five minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool.

The buttermilk is defiantly why this recipe works so well, once this cookies are cooked they remain soft but with a little crunch.  Such tasty cookies and I’ll admit if someone gave me a box of these for Valentines day I wouldn’t turn them down.
