Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! With Christmas eve almost in sight, bake these delicious crinkle cookies for Mr. Kris Kringle. These crinkle cookies sure to impress. I had tried this recipe, cut into half 2 weeks ago. It turned out so good that I decided to make them again. It's not only a feast to your eyes, the subtle hint of cocoa, right amount of sweetness and in between surprises of biting into chocolate morsels makes this a sure winner.
Prep Time: 20 min | Baking Time: 15 mins | Waiting Time: 1 Hr | Makes : About 40
Recipe Courtesy: Cooking Classy
All Purpose Flour + Multi-grain Flour - 3 cups
Cocoa Powder - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp.
Baking Powder - 2 tsp.
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp.
Softened Butter - 1/2 Cup
Olive Oil - 1/3 Cup
Granulated Sugar - 1 1/3 Cups
Eggs - 3
Buttermilk - 2 tbsp.
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp.
Red food coloring - 2 tsp.
White Chocolate Morsels - 3/4 Cup
Powdered sugar - 1/2 Cup (To roll the cookies)
Method of Preparation:
~ In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda and keep it aside.
~ In another large bowl using electric mixer, whip butter, oil and sugar together to form soft peaks.
~ Add in one egg at a time, blending each one into the mixture.
~ Add buttermilk, vanilla essence and the food coloring.
~ Slowly add in the dry flour ingredients and mix until combined.
~ Gently fold in the caramel bites. Cover with a plastic wrap and leave it the fridge for atleast an hour.
~ After you take out the dough out of the refrigerator, pre-heat the oven to 350 deg.
~ Place powdered sugar in a bowl. Scoop out small balls of the dough, shape them and roll them into powdered sugar. Transfer them to parchment lined cookie sheets. Handle them gently, otherwise the powdered sugar won't be visible at the end of baking.
~ Bake for about 12 mins, take it out and cool them on a wire rack. Once cooled store them in air tight container.
- Baking time depends upon how big the cookies are. I had a size of a medium lime.
- When you take them out, after cooling store them immediately. This is true for all the cookies especially when it's cold outside. They tend harden otherwise.
