We Love Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

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 cake.

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 let’s get mixing………so you can start eating!

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.

Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, a few inches apart.
