Firstly, a little commentary on how this 25 Days of Cookies Challenge is going.
Not every day has been successful. I have baked every day! But several days were less than impressive. So I’m not going to post every recipe on here, but rather the ones that I am definitely happy to make again and would recommend to my friends.
However – this week has been pretty successful! I started off on a high note on Day 10 with these Red Velvet cookies that we devoured too quickly and that have me wanting everything Velvet this week.
Full disclosure: this is a multi-step cookie. It is not a one-bowl, in the oven in 15 minutes cookie. But it is #worthit if you have the time!
The recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction and is multi-step (fridge time, freezer time, all the time).
You need to:
- Make the cookie dough, put it in the fridge
- Make the cream cheese filling, put it in the freezer, then roll into balls and put back in the fridge
- Make little cookies out of the dough, place the cream cheese filling in, and then cover with more dough
- Roll in sugar
- Place in the oven
So my suggestion is to do this on a day where you are relatively free or can stop to fulfill a step or two.
I thought my oven had been acting weird lately but I think I might just be making my cookies too big. I have one cookie scoop which is AMAZING but it’s not one-size fits all.
I ruled out my oven being the issue by getting an oven thermometer and it’s definitely within 5 degrees of the temp I set it to.
I love these so much. They qtr chewy with crunchy rims, and the tangy cream cheese filling off-sets the sweetness of the granulated sugar they’re rolled in.
I’m planning on making these again next week to gift to some of Mathias’ therapists because they really are amazing!
