Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Chilling 1 hour
Total Time 25 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
Combine flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Blend the sugar and butter on medium speed with a mixer until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add the egg, blend completely, then the vanilla, red food colouring, and vinegar.
Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture slowly, incorporating fully. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mixture for at least an hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Roll the red velvet cookie dough into tablespoon-sized balls and roll in a small bowl of white sugar to dust.
Place the cookie dough balls on a lined baking sheet and bake 8-12 minutes until spread and slightly firm to the touch. Remove from the oven, cool on the baking sheet for about a minute, and then remove to a cooling rack.
