Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm making this a Foodie Friday here at 2justByou today!

I was looking for a new cookie recipe to try, because the end of the [year-round] school year is here, and I really didn't want to take the same old chocolate chip cookies, even though they're an all time favorite.  




I did some searching, and I found some seriously yummy-looking Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I decided to try it out, but I ended up adapting it.  I made two batches, one for school and one for us at home!


Adapted from how sweet it is.

Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp red food coloring
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips


Directions:
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit (oven temperatures may vary)
* Cream butter & sugars until fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time until mixed & smooth.  Add vanilla until mixed in evenly.  Beat in the red food coloring.  Stir in cocoa, flour, baking soda & salt until just combined.  Then fold in the white chocolate chips.
* Drop by teaspoonful on baking sheet and bake 9-11 minutes. (For softer, chewy cookies, bake 9 minutes and leave on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.)
* Makes about 4 dozen.  Enjoy!



For variation, you can leave out the red food coloring and make these Chocolate White Chip Cookies!
What really happened is I had run out of red food coloring (since I made two batches - LOL), so the batch for us turned out to be this kind.  Tastes just as good!


What's your favorite cookie?

My favorite cookie is a spritz cookie and until I try to make it gluten-free I will miss these special Christmas cookies. I have a few recipes and I might try to make a batch over Thanksgiving. Enjoy your SITS Day. I wonder if your recipe could be adapted with gluten-free flour?
