Red Velvet Cookies

Who doesn't love a little red velvet every once in a while? Especially around the holidays or Valentine's Day!

Red Velvet Cookies

I made a different version of a Red Velvet cookie a couple years back and they were a huge hit with my family and friends. This year, I decided to try a simpler version that I could whip up at a moment's notice in case I needed to bring something for a last minute get together or something… These are perfect. I actually made them for the wine & painting party that I went to a couple weeks back and everyone loved them.

These are probably going to be the simplest cookie you will ever make because it starts with boxed cake mix! It’s truly the easiest cookie recipe you’ll ever find, especially for how soft, puffy, thick, and perfect they come out.

You’ll literally ask yourself HOW on earth a cookie this good can start from a box. Well, it does.
