Red Velvet White Chip Cookies

These cookies are soft, chewy and taste as good as they sound. The first time I baked them, I took them to an aunt's yard sale. Now they’re my go-to for any special event. —Samantha Gstalder, Montoursville, Pennsylvania

    My guys liked these. I made them for the holidays. I found them a tad too sweet. Will go back to making dark chocolate white chip, unless specifically requested.

    I made these cookies for my blog recently for a 12 Days of Cookies post this December. They were a hit with my family and neighbor. True red velvet flavor in a cookie. Perfect for a holiday cookie tray, tailgate snack or lunchbox. I love that there is not an excessive amount of red food coloring yet the color is stunning and definitely lets people know it's red velvet.
