RED VELVET CRINKLE COOKIES

I saw these delicious cookies and I knew I had to try them. They looked so fluffy and soft that I feel in love with them. I love anything red velvet so you do not have to sell me twice about these sweet morsels. Perfect for Valentines’ Day, Christmas or any holiday that your heart is set on. As far as cookies go, I think this is my favourite, coming a close second to chocolate cookies, that reminds me, this year I have to make them! I always enjoy the store bought ones but it is time I filled my house with the sweet aroma of baking cookies. I cannot wait, especially now that I have moved into my own house, so excited to try out the recipes I have been postponing for too long. I even have some recipes that are in draft form for 2018! What? All 68 of them, just waiting to be created. This beginning of the year will be the time to finish any left over recipes on my blog and develop new ones. Meanwhile, enjoy the video that I made on my YOU TUBE channel below. Leave a comment and let me know what you love about red velvet cookies.
