This cookies are amazing! I definitely recommend putting the dough in the refrigerator for about an hour before baking. (If not you will end up with red hands and a gooey mess!) Press them down for a more cookie-like feel instead of a "cakie." I topped them with a homemade cream cheese frosting and dark chocolate shavings. They were beautiful and delicious! I plan on making them again for another Christmas gathering.
I am not impressed with this one at all. Actually, we just threw the rest of the batch away. Hate to say it.... I followed the recipe just as it was written out but the cookies just tasted dry and the cocoa flavor was a bit over powering. I might have been expecting a bit much wanting a piece of red velvet in a cookie, but I just couldn't seem to get the red velvet flavor from this one. I would not recommend this, Sorry...
Made these for a party and were an absolute hit. My only advice to others (given some of the less than stellar reviews) is NOT to overbake. Cookies are moist, chocolately and delicious.
Delicious flavor, but they did not cook evenly, so i pressed (flattened) the second tray and they came out perfectly. I will deffinatley make them again!
Awesome recipe, very easy to make and very yummy!! I used homemade cream cheese frosting and skipped the nuts (due to allergies) and all three of my children (they are 4, 19, and 21) loved them!! In fact I had to hide them so that I'll have them for my cookie trays :-)
We're on batch #3. :) After the first one, I added an extra teaspoon each of butter and sour cream and chilled the dough before baking. I flattened the balls slightly since they were pretty firm. If you didn't like these, you baked them too long or didn't mix it well. This is the best cookie recipe of the season. I added green color to the frosting to make them Christmas-y.
I really hoped this recipe was going to live up to my expectations. I was hoping for more of a red velvet cake like cookie. I agree with another member who said the cocoa flavor was a bit overpowering. Other than that, there wasn't much flavor. They weren't overcooked either, so I know it wasn't the problem. I made these for a pot luck Christmas party. They weren't the biggest hit at the party. I only made one batch, and after a party of about 40 people, I still had about 1/3 of the batch left.
I make red velvet cookies ALL the time and I always get asked for more! However I use a much simpler and easier recipe.
