Let me guess. You’ve probably been invited to some Christmas parties where you’re required to bring a dessert of some sort – Christmas themed, of course. And let me guess….you’ve probably been stressing out about what to make.
Well, stress NO more because I’m going to put your mind at ease. You’re going to make red velvet cookies and they’re going to turn out GREAT!
Red velvet cookies are the perfect treat for a Christmas party because they already have Christmas colors, it doesn’t take a genius to make them and they turn out so pretty that it looks like a professional baker made them.
Now when you’re at your little Christmas party, you can actually enjoy yourself, rather than look at everybody else’s desserts and wish you had made something as neat as theirs. You’ll be chatting it up with friends and all of a sudden someone will shout out “Hey, who brought these red velvet cookies???” and you’ll casually raise your hand like it’s no big deal and the other person will declare “THESE ARE GREAT!” and you’ll smile and laugh and go back to your conversation with friends.
Now you really want to make these for your Christmas party. I can tell.
Some recipes are meant to be hard. This recipe isn’t one of those. You simply mix, roll and bake. The hardest part (if you even want to call it that) is rolling the dough balls in the sugar. OH, SO HARD.
