While surfing the internet for a "magical Christmas cookie", I stumbled on the Red Velvet Thumbprint by Betty Crocker. For recipe, please click the link. I found the recipe to be very easy to follow. I had all the ingredients already in the pantry - including the red food colouring from when I made the red velvet cake a while back! So off I went to make the cute little cookies!!
As I mentioned, the recipe was quite easy but I found it took a lot of elbow grease to mix the cocoa into the cookie dough evenly. phew!
I baked the cookies and poured the melted white chocolate into the thumb dents and then to add a colourful holiday touch, sprinkled red sugar on the white chocolate before cooling. I even rolled some of the red cookies in coloured sprinkles before baking, just because I had sprinkles!! Hee! hee!!
I found the cookies to be buttery - like a butter cookie with a hint of chocolate taste. Pretty good and tasty, but nothing worth bragging about but definitely a cookie I'd make again.
