i didn’t know what red velvet was until i moved to the south. and then i fell in love.

red velvet is like my red lipstick. it’s something i need in my life. well, maybe my thighs and stomach don’t need them but man, red velvet anything is delicious.

since i’m not much of a cake eater but i love cookies, i decided to try my hand at making them myself. with the following batter, i made some basic red velvet cookies and then i dipped some oreos in there and made those too. oreos are definitely my favorite cookies so naturally these things went together in my head.

red velvet cookies:

    • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
    • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 tablespoon red food coloring

i just mixed the ingredients together and baked at 375 for 10 min.

voila! deliciousness is yours!
