Valentine’s Day Cookies Part 1

With only 3 days to go until Valentine’s Day, I decided to start my baking tonight. While I prepped the sugar cookie dough that I’ll be baking off tonight, but decorating tomorrow, I decided to whip up a batch of Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies.


I used the same recipe we use for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies at Christmas and just swapped in Red Velvet Cake Mix for the Devil’s Food. You can find the recipe I used on here. They are just as delicious as the originals, but must more festive looking! I hope my friends & family enjoy them in a few days!
