Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red is the Christmas color, isn’t it?

Well, Christmas cookie season has OFFICIALLY started. I baked 3 different types of cookies this weekend and ate SO MANY of them, hoping that my gluten intollerance would, for the sake of good holiday times, just be a bit more merciful with me…Well, it turned out it wasnt and today I am SO sick!!!

So back on my gluten-free diet from today. However, for you people out there who can indulge and have all you want, well enjoy this first of a long list Christmas cookie recipe!

Have a lovely Monday 🙂


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp liquid red food coloring
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.


Mix in the food coloring until combined.


Add the flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder and mix on low until a soft dough is formed.


On low speed, beat in the white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Using about 1 Tbsp of dough per cookie, roll the dough into balls and place on the cookie sheet, leaving plenty of space between each dough ball.


Bake each batch for 11 minutes, or until cookie is just set. Press down on the warm cookies to slightly flatten and form crinkles.


Let the cookies cool down on a wire rack before storing them 🙂


After eating 3 of them I brought the rest to cooking class on Sunday morning. My students appreciated that 🙂


YUMMY and sooooo colorful
