Feature: 12 Days of Easy Christmas Cookies #6 - Red Velvet Sugar Cookies, Easy and Gorgeous

Image: The Cookie Elf

Red Velvet Sugar Cookies are a combination of two favorites: an easy sugar cookie recipe and red velvet cake. (And red velvet is in reality a variation of chocolate but with a unique deep red or red-brown color.)

This is a gorgeous cookie to make and serve for holidays, Valentine’s Day, and parties.

And here’s a little secret: it’s is incredibly easy and quick to make! Just 4 ingredients (one of them is a cake mix) allow you to mix the cookie dough fast. And you can swish together the glaze while the cookies cool.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
