I found this recipe when other searches for a non-cakey red velvet cookie turned up short. Got me to thinking that since red velvet cake is a chocolate cake in diguise, why wouldn't that apply to cut-out cookies as well? This chocolate shortbread recipe appealed to me because of the numerous dependable reviews and gorgeous pictures, so I knew what my end result should resemble. I simply decreased the cocoa powder by half, added a small amount of Wilton's Red-Red to desired shade then cut and baked as directed. Once decorated, these shortbread, while not as chocolatey as the original recipe, not only look gorgeous (pics in profile), they taste gorgeous too. Thanks Emily, soon your red velvet shortbread cookies will be famous as well.
