cookie Week 2010- Cookie #4

These cookies are my favorite so far! Kinda messy to make with the red dye, but so worth it!
Betty Crocker Red Velvet cookies.


Here's what you'll need:

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon red food color
1 egg
3/4 to 1 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, cocoa, butter, sour cream, food color and egg until soft dough forms.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
Frost cooled cookies with frosting. Sprinkle with nuts. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

Check back later today! Cookie #5 posts at 4:00pm.

Red Velvet cake/cupcakes are my absolute favorites. I'd be willing to bet these are equally as amazing. Drool.
