Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red Velvet Cookies

I’ve been blogging for almost 5 years, and I never imagined what would come out of it. I’ve made so many wonderful friends through this blog, and when there’s good news in the blogging community, I feel like it’s happening to a real life friend. Sometimes, I actually almost tell my real life friends “OMG ::blogger name:: is engaged!”, but I thankfully stop myself because my friends would think I’m a little crazy. Oh well….

Today, I’m contributing a dessert to Amy’s (of Amy’s Kitchen Creations) virtual baby shower, which was organized by Carrie of Carrie’s Sweet Life. I know Amy from a cooking forum that we post to. I feel like this little cooking/food forum is just a big group of friends. While we no longer post on The Nest (where the original forum was), it’s great that someone started a forum elsewhere for us to remain in contact. A bunch of us on there are bloggers, and it’s just wonderful to discuss things with other bloggers. It’s not like I can go to my friends/family and ask them about a certain plug-in or blogging conference lol! So, being able to “talk” to these gals is just amazing.

Anywho, back to Amy. Amy is expecting a little girl very soon, and I figured I’d contribute a dessert (as always haha). I went to her blog to see what she enjoyed dessert-wise, and thought that I should contribute something chocolate, but well….chocolate isn’t very pink. I like to make pink desserts for showers haha! So, I kept reading and noticed her post about red velvet cupcakes…I thought, hrm….could I make something PINK velvet?! So, I went to Pinterest, and found these red velvet white chocolate chip cookies. They sounded awesome, and I thought if I added enough pink coloring, I could get the color to stand out over the cocoa. Well…they still turned out red lol, so it’s the thought that counts, right?

While the cookies aren’t that pink color I was hoping for, I will say that the taste of these cookies more than make-up for it! These cookies are thick and chewy…the cornstarch is an ingredient that I’m loving lately in cookies. It just gives cookies a wonderful texture, and the flavor of these cookies are spot-on. Definitely the red velvet that I know and love. :-)

Congratulations, Amy! I wish I could really send you these cookies…I think you would enjoy them!

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Cooking Classy

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. distilled white vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. red food coloring
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Set this aside.
  3. Using a stand mixer, mix together the butter, sugar and vinegar for 3-4 minutes, until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and scrape down the bowl. Add the vanilla extract and food coloring and mix until just blended.
  4. With the mixer on low, add in the dry ingredients and mix until everything is just combined. Using a spatula, mix in the white chocolate chips.
  5. Using a medium sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough out onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie for baking. Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Then, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
