Everything you love about red velvet cookies and chocolate chip cookies all blended into one soft and chewy Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookie.
2014 Countdown To Christmas…Cookies Week 1
If you are a lover of red velvet and chocolate chip cookies you NEED to make these!
I have combined two of my favorites, red velvet and chocolate chip cookies into one delicious Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookie. They are so easy and everyone will love them, trust me! If you are heading to a holiday cookie exchange these year, you may want to put these on your list. My secret weapon in these cookies is chocolate instant pudding mix in place of typical cocoa powder. The result is one tasty cookie perfect for dunking in a cold glass of milk!
I am excited to be kicking off the Mother Thyme 2014 Countdown to Christmas…Cookies series with these yummy cookies. I have done this series since 2011. I have shared throughout the years some of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes like Iced Oatmeal Cookies, Pistachio Wedding Cookies and Lofthouse Sugar Cookies. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love kicking it off with this series on MT.
Each Monday from now until December 22nd I will be sharing my favorite cookies with you. I have some great ones in stores including these, so if you plan on doing some holiday baking this year, you don’t want to miss this series.
It’s a snowy Monday here in Buffalo with a lot of snow expected these next few days. I love having Christmas music playing (yes, I am listening to Christmas music already) and doing some baking. So if you are stuck inside like I am these next few days, grab a few simple ingredients and whip up these cookies! Don’t forget you can start baking now and freeze these cookies. Just wrap them in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag or container. When ready to serve just thaw at room temperature and you have fresh baked homemade cookies to enjoy!
