Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Three cheers for Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies!

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies are the perfect cookie recipe! We enjoy them for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and year-round too. Simply beautiful and delicious!

When I first posted these, I was on my way to Florida for the last time, for now.

It was awesome. Rider was there, but I didn’t even know it! There were manatees. There were alligators, and there were sloths too! For now, though, this year, there will be cookies. These cookies are divine! I used to love to tell Valentine’s Day stories on my blog, and to share them with recipes. So pull up a chair because this one is going to be at least a paragraph! And maybe have a cookie while you read. This story is why red velvet reminds me of Valentine’s Day 2007.

When I had made the decision to move to California in April 2007, I had also been successful in my replacement roommate search and he was moving into my room in February. So I moved back in with my parents for two months and commuted to work. It was one of the strangest times of my life! Even though I had left for college at 18 and then left for the “real world” at 22 or so, I felt like I was losing my parents forever. I knew it would never be the same, as I embarked on something so new, so distant, and maybe so permanent. So my mom and I had holiday countdowns. We’d leave each other morning presents for weeks before Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter. The Valentine’s Day one was our best one! Many amazing gifts and sweets.

And red velvet as well!

  2. We are huge red velvet fans. In fact, I just made a red velvet cake for the superbowl because I figured it would be good no matter who won. As it turns out, we were rooting for the Chiefs so it was all good. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. Aw, such pretty cookies. I make Chocolate Crinkle Cookies minus the red velvet for Christmas time. But might need to give these a whirl for Valentine’s Day. Have so much fun in Florida and say hi to Mickey for me!! 🙂
