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 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 3 – 3 ½ dozen cookies
1 box (16 ounces) red velvet cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
White decorator sugar or granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1-3 tablespoons milk or water
Special Baking Tips for Red Velvet Sugar Cookies
If formed cookie balls dry out before you roll them in sugar, spray the surfaces with vegetable spray which will allow decorator sugar to adhere evenly.
Save mess. Mix the glaze in the same cup you use to measure the powdered sugar. Simply add the milk or water to the cup and swirl with a spoon.
