Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies – How to Make


We love the holiday season for a many reasons: good company, great food, tasty drinks, and… COOKIES! The oven gets a lot of use around the holidays baking sweets for dessert, treats for friends and family, or for yourself–if they even make it to the oven, that is! Cookie dough on a spoon is my fav!

I love red velvet cupcakes so much, I figured, what the hell… let’s try cookies! And on the 7th day, there was red velvet crinkle cookies! Dip ‘em in milk, give ‘em to friends, eat the whole batch by yourself! Who cares! That’s another great thing about the holidays, right? *wink*

Happy holidays, and enjoy!
