Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Perfect holiday cookie for any Christmas celebration! Use green food coloring for green velvet!

I've never been much of a cookie baker, but with Christmas right around the corner, my daughter and I have been trying alot of new cookie recipes. I found this recipe browsing online recently and I knew it would be so perfect for the holidays. I just love the flavor and texture of these cookies. The white chocolate chips add a perfect touch. I suggest splitting this batch in half, or making a second batch using green food coloring instead of red for "green velvet" cookies. Then you can have a mixture of both colors. They are so perfect for the holidays! Enjoy! 

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Sheena
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips plus extra for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add vinegar, mix until combined. Add egg, mix until combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl. Add vanilla and red food coloring, mix until combined.
To the butter mixture, add flour, cocoa, corn starch, baking powder and salt. Mix on low until combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into ping pong sized balls and place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes. When you take the cookies out of the oven, gently press a few white chocolate chips tip side down, into the top of the cookies for garnish.

  8. You have a "pin it" button for this cookie recipe--which I used to pin this recipe---but, then you reported the pin as being a copyright infringement?? The pin was directly from this page and linked directly back to this page.....I'm not sure how that is an infringement...only, more like a complement and also directing traffic to your site.

    1. The pin was reported because it included the list of ingredients and/or recipe. People have no reason to visit the site when that info is included on the pin. You are more than welcome to pin again, without that info listed in the description. Thanks for stopping by.
