Red_Velvet_Crinkle_Cookies1Okay, my friends. I have a last minute easy dessert idea for Christmas! And yes, it’s another red velvet recipe. 😀 These are Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies and they are my new best friends. 

I was scrolling through Facebook the other morning and saw a video on how to make these awesome cookies. It was perfect timing because my sister had just told me the day before that I was in charge of a dessert for our Christmas eve party. It was truly meant to be, I’m tellin’ ya. 🙂 

These cookies are so dang good, and so simple to make. I love that they call for a cake mix to make life easier. Hallelujah. They are soft, chewy and red velvet deliciousness!

  1. Hi Holly 🙂 Me again – lol. Could I make these & freeze them for a couple of days or would the sugar on top go funky? My 2 yr old is having a cookies & milk birthday party on Sat & they’re on my list of cookies! Thanks for always replying so quick!

  2. I thought I’d give these a try. I’m in love!!!!!!!! I added 3/4 C white baking chips (Nestle brand). Heaven!!!!!! My new favorite cookie! I took a pic, but don’t see where I can upload that.
