Cookies are my go to baked treat. They're simple, don't take long, and pack so much goodness into such a small thing. Cookies are good. If you can make nothing else, at least try making some cookies. You may surprise yourself.
You know red velvet cake, right?
If you haven't had it, you need to. It's like nothing else. It's incredibly delicious when made right. And who could resist a pretty, brightly colored cake?
These cookies give you that fun without having to make an entire cake with frosting. They are chewy and so delightful. I took a batch to the misters house and came back the next day to find a bag with only three or four cookies left. I asked him what happened to them and he simply replied "They're too good."
