Red Velvet Cookies

I mentioned in a previous post that we've been cooking like maniacs around here for the holidays. One of popular to-go/catering establishments near our house advertises Red Velvet Cookies during the holidays, and being the cheap-skate that I am, I didn't want to pay $15 for two dozen. I did a quick Google search and found the EASIEST COOKIE RECIPE ON EARTH.

Red Velvet Cookies

  • One box of Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Mix all the ingredients together with a very strong spoon because DENSE is an understatement. I used our Kitchenaid stand mixer after the first batch. Roll small balls of dough, squish slightly, and lay them out on your baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.

I dipped my cookies in granulated sugar before baking because they have a really pretty crackle about them and it makes for a crunchy outside and soft, chewy middle. The picture are NOT my cookies, but mine looked very similar, so there!

I've been giving these away at work in little holiday packages, and they seem to be a big hit with everyone (including the Rockets). The color is beautiful, and they bake perfectly if you're using a nice, thick baking sheet. We also decided to expand our cake mix cookie experience. We tried the same recipe with a lemon cake mix, and they were delicious, too. I glazed them with a powdered sugar/lemon glaze and, need I say more, they're already gone!

Enjoy this easy recipe from our lazy household to yours!
