Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

August 4, 2014

I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve never been a huge fan of red velvet anything. 

Red velvet brownies, red velvet cookies, not even that red velvet cheesecake that everyone was going crazy about from the Cheesecake Factory. 

It might be all in my head, but I just know the amount of food coloring that goes in there and I feel like that’s all I can taste.

Everyone always tells me “It’s just chocolate!” 

So… why don’t you just eat regular chocolate then? 

But I’ve done it. I’ve made a red velvet cookie that I actually like. 

It might be the massive amounts of cream cheese frosting… You all know of my undying love for cream cheese frosting already, but I really think I’ve got something here. 

I use the same recipe as my chocolate sandwich cookies, but I added in a little extra cocoa and of course, red food coloring. 

Let’s all go look at the pictures of my chocolate sandwich cookies and laugh and laugh. It’s nice to see I’ve made some improvements with my photography. 

These puppies, much likes their pure chocolate counterparts, are soft and chocolatey and oh so delicious. 

Soft cookies are my jam.
