  • 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.
