Super moist, fudgy, Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies with an unusual ingredient that gives them a really amazing texture!
Have I ever told you how much I love Red Velvet…..I mean….. LOVE? Well, if I haven’t already gone in to detail….let me just say…I LOVE LOVE LOVE Red Velvet! The flavor….sweet, mild chocolate….a lil tangy….oh and the COLOR! Happy, joyous, bright, glorious REDDDD. It just makes me happy. You know, like I’m 8 years old at Disneyland and Tinkerbell fly’s across the night sky. That kind of HAPPY.
So, these Red Velvet Cream Cheese Crinkle Cookies are AH-MAZING! The cream cheese gives them the signature Red Velvet tang, but it also makes the cookies dense and fudgy in texture. The color is a lovely deep red and contrasts gorgeously with the white powdered sugar crackle. The flavor is, just the right amount chocolaty and, overall, wonderfully Red Velvet.
