Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

Happy Holidays!! I’m Cheryl, the self proclaimed net freak and voice behind TidyMom.net. I’m super excited to be small part of Jamielyn’s Crazy Christmas event! You can tell by the looks of my kitchen that the holiday baking season is upon us. Cookies are usually on everyone’s holiday baking list, so I thought I’d share one of my family’s favorites…….Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

Being from St. Louis, Gooey Butter Cake is a must have at our house and there was always one made for Christmas morning. The only thing that comes close to gooey butter cake, is gooey butter cookies……make them Red Velvet and you have a holiday cookie hit and a boxed cake mix makes them so simple you’ll have no excuse not to make them!

I used a Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix, butter, an egg, cream cheese, homemade vanilla, white chocolate chips and powdered sugar. Mix it all together (full recipe below)

Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

Roll dough into one inch balls, I like to scoop out the dough with a cookie scoop then roll into a ball with my hands. Using a small bowl full of powdered sugar, roll each Red Velvet Cookie to completely cover in sugar.

Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, a few inches apart. Bake until set. These are soft cookies, almost cake like. After they cool completely, dust with more powdered sugar if you’d like.

Now you have a gorgeous decadent cookies for your holiday dessert table or cookie trays!……….if they make it that long ;)

Enjoy!!

    Do you have to add White Chocolate chips? Or can that just be taken out or something else added in its place?

      I think you could leave it out. You could also exchange it for milk chocolate chips! :)

    I don’t usually make things that aren’t from scratch, but I had so many kinds of cookies on my plate (literally!) to bake this holiday season that I decided to add these to the mix for an easy change. They turned out fantastic, looked beautiful, and taste great. Thanks for the nice cake doctoring! :]
