Red Velvet Cookies

  • Ingredients for the cookies:

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tablespoons buttermilk

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon red food coloring

  • Ingredients for the cream cheese frosting:

1 pound cream cheese, softened

2 sticks butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups powdered sugar

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans, optional


Preheat oven to 375F. Mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs 1 at a time. Then beat in the buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla and red food coloring.

Once combined, add the dry ingredients to wet. Mix until thoroughly combined. Onto a parchment lined sheet tray, drop batter using an ice cream scoop, forming 2-inch round circles. Bake for 10 minutes, until baked through. Cookies should be cake-like and light.

Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. While your cookies are cooling, make the cream cheese frosting.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low-speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.

Spread the cream cheese frosting between 2 cooled cookies and roll the edges in finely chopped pecans, if desired.
