Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
Red Velvet Crinkles Cookies are thick and fudgy with just a hint of cocoa flavor. They’re the perfect easy and festive treat for Valentine’s Day or Christmas. What are red velvet crinkle cookies? You’ve probably had a crinkle cookie around the holidays. They’re traditionally a dense, fudgy, chocolate cookie rolled in powdered sugar for a snowy appearance. A lot of people make them by doctoring a cake mix and don’t get me wrong, they’re delicious. But there’s nothing quite like homemade.
These red velvet crinkle cookies are slightly less chocolatey than their original chocolate version and are, of course, red, but they have the same dense, almost brownie texture and are simply scrumptious.
Tips for the best crinkle cookies:
- Don’t chill your dough: I found that refrigerating our dough made the cookies keep their shape too much.
- Roll the dough in granulated sugar and powdered sugar: This will help the powdered sugar stick to the cookie and prevent the powdered sugar from dissolving into the moisture of the cookie so you get that good snowy crinkle every time!
- Don’t over bake: You want these red velvet crinkle cookies to e slightly gooey in the middle so that they don’t dry out!
I am so excited it’s finally the heart season, and even more excited to share all our favorite valentine’s dessert recipes with you!
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
- 1 box red velvet cake mix I used Duncan Hines
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Powdered sugar for rolling the cookies
- heart-shaped cookie cutter optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine cake mix and flour. Whisk until clumps disappear.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together cake mix, flour, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
- Take about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and form it into a ball. Roll the ball in powdered sugar until fully coated.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack.
- Let cookies sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Cut cookies into your preferred shape, using a cookie cutter.
- You don't have to cut the cookies into heart shapes. They are great round too!
