Can I tell you how much I love my mama’s Red Velvet Cake?

She only makes it once a year, at Christmas. So I spend the rest of the year dreaming of them, plotting my next bite.

But I don’t want a whole cake because lawd my waistline!

But the idea came to me to try…cookies…

With Valentines’ Day coming up, I felt like WHY NOT right?

So check out this easy to make Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe!

Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing

This recipe is really easy to make. The first thing you need to do is gather all of your ingredients so that you don’t end up going back and forth.

Next, cream the butter, sugar and cream cheese together in a mixing bowl until smooth.

Add in the egg yolk, vanilla and red food coloring (add enough to create the color you want, gel colors will require a lot less than liquid).

Whisk together all purpose flour, corn starch, salt and cocoa powder

On low speed add half of the dry ingredients until incorporated

Then add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.

Bake 12-16 minutes.
Cool for 5 mins on the baking sheet before transferring to a cookie rack to cool completely 25- 30 mins.

Aren’t they cute???? And so so moist and chewy inside, like the cake and the cookie had a baby.

How to Make Cream Cheese Icing

Add all ingredients to a bowl

Mix until well combined, frosting will be thick and creamy.

Extra tip: The longer you mix the frosting the fluffier it will be due to the air being incorporated.

Spread onto your cookies and …..EAT THEM! LOL

Ok, hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I did!
