Red Velvet Cookies

From Coolhaus


  1. For the cookies:
    8 ounces butter
    6 ounces brown sugar
    6 ounces sugar
    2 whole eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon red food coloring
    14-1/2 ounces pastry flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  1. For the icing:
    1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
    3 tablespoons water
    1 drop vanilla extract


  1. Make cookies: In a standing mixer, cream butter and sugars; add eggs, vanilla, and liquid food coloring. Sift dry ingredients together, then add to butter, sugar, and egg mixture; mix until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and chill well, at least an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Using a scooper, scoop mounds (about 1.2 ounces each) onto a baking sheet. Bake, checking after 5 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Make icing: Combine powdered sugar with water and vanilla until well-incorporated. Drizzle over cookies and allow to set until firm.

Makes 32 cookies.
