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.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
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
* 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!
