Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies
A Red Velvet twist on the St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake made into a soft delicious cookie, with white chocolate chips — a perfect Valentines Day treat.
You know a cookie is good, when they disappear fast!
I actually made these Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies during the holidays, took pictures and totally forgot to post about them until I saw them on my camera the other day, looking all “Christmasy”. Knowing how fast they were devoured the first time, I thought I’d make another batch, since Red Velvet would make the perfect Valentine cookie.
Way back in December, Allison and I had a Red Velvet crinkle cookie at Panera and she said we should try to make some at home. I thought about the chocolate crinkle cookies I had made in the past, and Red Velvet should have cream cheese, so I thought……..why not Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies?! You know how much I LOVE all things gooey butter.
Well, grab your baking sheets, because these are not only EASY but good golly they were a hit! Allison and her friends devoured the entire batch in record time!
So lets get mixing………so you can start eating!
The ingredients are simple. I used a Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix, butter, an egg, cream cheese, homemade vanilla, white chocolate chips and powdered sugar. Mix it all together (full recipe below)
Roll dough into one inch balls, I like to scoop out the dough with a cookie scoop then roll into a ball with my hands. Using a small bowl full of powdered sugar, roll each Red Velvet Cookie to completely cover in sugar.
Bake until set. These are soft cookies, almost cake like. After they cool completely, dust with more powdered sugar if you’d like.
