Red Velvet Sugar Cookies

These Red Velvet sugar cookies will be a great addition to a simple friends get-together and a romantic dinner with your significant other. Perfect for any occasion and easy to make, these cookies are made out of simple ingredients that can be found in every household and take under 30 minutes to make!


  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon red gel food coloring

  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ⅛ teaspoon fine salt

  • 6 white chocolate peanut butter hearts (like Reese's)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350, and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a silicone mat).

  2. Stir together the melted butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla extract and red food coloring. Stir very well to combine.

  3. Next, sprinkle the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt evenly over the dough, and stir just to combine.

  4. Press the dough flat and evenly in the bowl, and then divide it in half by eye. You should get 3 cookies from each half.

  5. Roll each dough ball in your hands, roll lightly extra granulated sugar, and then space evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they spread, start to crackle and appear dry on top.

  7. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. After the cookies have cooled for 10 minutes, press a white chocolate heart into the center of each cookie. Move the cookies to the fridge (so the hearts don't melt too much) to set for 30 minutes.

  9. Bring to room temperature before serving.
