Red velvet crinkle cookies are what they sound like.

During the holidays, you’ve undoubtedly eaten a crinkle cookie. They’re a rich, fudgy chocolate cookie with a distinctive crackling top that’s rolled in powdered sugar. Many people create these by doctoring a cake mix, and they’re excellent. However, nothing beats the taste of something created from scratch.

These homemade red velvet crinkle cookies are somewhat less chocolaty than their chocolate counterparts and, of course, red, but they have the same rich, almost brownie feel and are just delicious.

What is the best way to bake red velvet cookies?

Of course, red food coloring! Simply put a few generous drops (approximately 1/4 teaspoon) of red food coloring into the dough, and you’ll have Christmas red cookies in no time.

I must confess that I despise preparing red velvet desserts. That hasn’t stopped me (hello, red velvet macarons, red velvet cake, and red velvet brookies). BUT, I’m sure I’m not alone in despising the fact that they paint all of your baking equipment red for a limited time. But, well, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. Live fast, die young, wicked girls do it well… or whatever it is that the youth of days are saying.

And trust me when I say that this red velvet crinkle cookie recipe is worth the additional scrub in the sink.

For the best crinkle cookies, follow these guidelines:

  • Don’t refrigerate the dough: You want these cookies to spread a little so they don’t end up looking like spherical snowballs. We discovered that chilling the dough caused the cookies lose their form too much, so if you do prep the dough ahead of time, set it out on the counter for an hour to come back to room temperature!
  • Roll the dough in both granulated and powdered sugar to assist the powdered sugar attach to the cookie and prevent it from dissolving in the cookie’s wetness, ensuring that you get the perfect white crinkle every time!
  • Don’t overbake: To avoid drying out, these red velvet crinkle cookies should be somewhat sticky in the centre.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (brown)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (professional)*
  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • cocoa powder, 1/3 cup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered baking soda
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • a half-cup of powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove from the equation.
  2. In a large mixing basin, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the basin and add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Mix in the vanilla and red food coloring well.
  3. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a separate basin. Combine the dry and wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
  4. Fill one bowl with powdered sugar and the other with granulated sugar. To scoop cookies, use a 1 ounce cookie scoop (or a tablespoon). To fully cover the cookie balls, roll them first in granulated sugar and then in powdered sugar. Place an inch apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies have swelled and cracked but are still gooey in the middle.
  5. Allow it cool completely before serving with a glass of milk.

Notes

*Food coloring comes in a wide range of colors. Wilton professional food coloring, which is incredibly pigmented, was used to make them. You’ll need extra if you’re using store-bought gel or liquid food coloring.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are my crinkle cookies hard?

A: Unfortunately, the crinkle cookies you baked have become hard. It is likely that they are too dry and need to be soaked in water for a few hours before using again.

Why are my crinkle cookies flat?

A: The oven is too cold. Make sure your crinkle cookies are heated up before coming out of the oven so that they crisp and caramelize on the outside.

Why are crinkles called crinkles?

A: The word crinkle is thought to have originated from the Middle English word krinkel, which means a little bow or bend. This led to many people thinking that the name for this type of fabric came from a piece of cloth with a small, in-curved fold at one end. In reality, however, crinkles are not named after their shape but because they arise when something rubs against them and makes them look like tiny waves on water.
