Red Velvet Crinkle are perfect Christmas or Valentine Cookies. They are deliciously soft, moist and super easy to make! A recipe that's definitely not from a cake mix (box) but everything from scratch. I've tried a few red velvet cookies before, and they all have this after-taste and could be because of too much food color in it and less cocoa powder so I thought of giving it another try.
Instead of looking elsewhere for a recipe, I just adopted if from my Chocolate Crinkles recipe. Actually, it's a recipe from a friend who shared it to me years ago. Since then, many of my followers tried it and they all loved it. The only thing I changed from the original recipe was the sugar. I added brown sugar in addition to the granulated sugar and the food color.
I knew already that it will come out soft and moist as I have made the Chocolate Crinkles many times. What I did was experiment on the dough and see what the difference on the result will be if I don't rest the dough in the chiller or if I'm in a hurry and can't wait for 4 hours and see the outcome if I place it in a freezer.
My take on it? Be patient and wait it for it to firm up either chill or freeze for 45 minutes. If you can wait overnight, that's much better! Crinkles are thicker and flavorful when refrigerated.
You also have the option here to add cream cheese since Red Velvet is perfect with cream cheese frosting. You can place the filling in between the two cookies, like macarons. So good and way better than eating it alone.
