Red Velvet Cookies
Christmas cookies that are just right to tempt Santa. Today I’m sharing my friend Deb’s Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chips from her new Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook!
If there ever was a cookie better fit for setting out with milk on Christmas Eve, I can’t imagine what it would be. When I found these Red Velvet Cookies, I knew exactly what I would be serving Santa this year!
My friend Deborah Harroun from the fabulous blog Taste and Tell, has recently released her book Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook, which is available now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indiebound.
Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook is filled to the brim with decadent red velvet recipes. From cakes to crepes, Deb had created over 50 marvelous recipes you have to try.
I added many of Deb’s red velvet recipes to my holiday baking list this year, but these Red Velvet Cookies were at the top of my list!
Deb’s Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chips are soft and chewy with that distinct red velvet flavor we love, and kisses of white chocolate throughout.
They are vibrant in color and easy to make. In fact, this is a cookie recipe my kids could whip up on their own.
I knew Santa would be all over these red velvet cookies. After all, they not only taste like Christmas, they match his suit.
Red Velvet Cookies last for several days in an airtight container, but you could make the dough ahead and freeze or refrigerate it, for quick baking on Christmas Eve.

Merry Christmas to all!!

These are perfect! The red velvet and white chips are so Christmasy!
I haven’t had a red velvet dessert in too long! These cookies will probably change that soon :)
Are these cookies crunchy?
Hi Candice! They are pretty soft.
I think these look good enough to convince Santa to leave a few extras under the tree!
Oh yeah, now these are my kind of cookie. Pass the pan!
Thank you SO much!! I’m so glad you enjoyed the cookies, and now I think I need to make some for Santa’s plate! ;)
