Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Like Red Velvet cake and want to make a super simple – and festive – cookie this weekend?  Try these Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies.

With only five ingredients, you can’t get much simpler than this.  Using boxed red velvet cake mix eliminates many ingredients and saves a ton of time.  Not to mention you don’t have to worry about the possibility of ending up with red food coloring in random spots in your kitchen, on your clothes or under your fingernails like you do when making typical red velvet recipes from scratch.  What I love specifically about these cookies is the fact that they add a festive color to your cookie jar and really do mirror the beloved flavor of red velvet.  They do use quite a bit of oil – maybe even a little too much – so they stay moist and always soft.  Any red velvet lover will appreciate you bringing these crinkle cookies to the table.

Take about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and form into a ball.  Roll the ball in powdered sugar until fully coated.  Place cookie dough balls on prepared baking sheet.  Bake in a 350ºF oven for 10 minutes, or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack.
