Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day treat, then this is the cookie for you.  Using a box cake mix is a fabulous shortcut, especially when it comes to red velvet.  If you’ve ever tried making red velvet batter from scratch, you know it takes about a gallon of red dye.  Plus, cake mix cookies are always soft and chewy, just the way cookies should be.  And did I mention these are quick and easy?  My kids kept pressuring me to get a picture taken so they could eat more!

  1. So pretty! Yum.

  2. Beautiful:) I will have to try these! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

  3. Looks yummy! I need to get on the ‘red velvet’ bandwagon.

  4. I just made them and they were absolutely spectacular! Foolproof!

  5. Delicious and very easy to make! I made red velvet and devils food! Kids loved them!

  6. Has anybody tried freezing these? How long do they keep?

    • They freeze really well Marie. I think they be best eaten within a month, but I think you could easily freeze them for a few months and they’d still be good.
