Frosted Red Velvet Cookies + A Eggland's Best Eggs Giveaway!



I was recently contacted by Eggland's Best Eggs to create a holiday dessert using their awesome eggs. Of course I jumped up at the opportunity! I decided to make these Frosted Red Velvet Cookies. I'm so excited about these cookies. They are some of the best tasting cookies I've ever made. They literally taste like a cupcake in a cookie form - perfect for the holiday's! Thanks to Eggland's Best Eggs for making these a huge success!

Everyone knows Eggland's Best Eggs are "those egg's with the red 'E' stamped on them" but they are so much more than that!

Ingredients:
2 Sticks Butter, softened
1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 1oz Bottle Red Food Coloring
Cream Cheese Frosting (find my recipe HERE)

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla sour cream and food coloring; beat until smooth. 

In a small bowl, whisk together your flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until everything is evenly incorporated.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto your prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They may seem slightly too soft in the middle but they will be done. Remove cookies to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting. Add some festive sprinkles if desired. 


* The Eggland's Best coupon, information, and two gift packs, one for me to keep, the other for me to giveaway to one of my readers, have been provided by Eggland's Best. All opinions are my own.
