Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Red-Velvet-Crinkle-CookiesEach holiday I have my list of go-to goodie recipes that are family favorites, but I also add some new recipes to the mix.  I bake quite a large amount of goodies every year for friends, family and business professionals I work  with.  Gifts from the heart and kitchen are ones that always touch the soul!

This year I experimented with a few new cookie recipes, including one for Red Velvet cookies.  This recipe uses a red velvet cake mix with  pudding in the mix and is similar to gooey butter cake- which you just can’t go wrong with.  It’s become our 2015 holiday favorite cookie, hope your family enjoys it just as much.

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
1 package Red Velvet Cake Mix
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.  In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.  Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined, then add the cake mix and continue mixing until a dough forms.  The dough will be very thick.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Place powdered sugar in a bowl.  Form one inch dough balls and roll the dough in the powdered sugar to coat throughly.  Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.  Bake for 11 minutes, until the centers are set.  Cool on a wire rack then dust with powdered sugar.
