How To Make The Valentine’s Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

  1. First of all, you will want to preheat the oven to 375°F, and line a baking or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Get your powdered sugar and place it into a small bowl. Set it aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine your cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil. Give all of the ingredients a good stir. Check out the packet instructions for some extra tips. You will find that the mixture appears very thick.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to portion the dough into tablespoon-sized balls. You will then want to roll the balls of dough into the powdered sugar. 
  4. Using your hand press the dough slightly to help it spread out better. You could also use a cup if needed.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies start to turn slightly brown on the edges. Allow the cookies to be set for a few minutes before using the cookie cutter to cut out the heart shape. Trim away any excess cookie that remains. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling. Then you can enjoy the tasty treats!

Add some frosting. You can’t go wrong with a bit of extra frosting for decoration and cream cheese frosting is a great option. You could also decorate with some red sprinkles. 

Make it extra chocolatey. If you want to be a little extra with this red velvet crinkles recipe then why not add some white chocolate chips to the mixture before creating the cookies and baking them?

Make these for Christmas. This is a cookie recipe perfect for the holiday season. The red color is very festive and you can use different cookie cutter shapes to make a fun Christmas cookie.

Tips & Tricks 

  • When spreading the small balls of dough we tried to shape some of them a bit so that the bottom was longer to ensure that the dough would spread to the bottom of the heart cut-out better.
  • If you can’t get your hands on heart-shaped cookie cutters then you could create one large heart shape cookie or have a go at making the shapes yourself. 

Storage

You can make these ahead of time for ease. If you have some leftover then you can store the crinkle cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days.

You could also freeze these on a baking sheet and then add them to a freezer bag and pull them out as and when you need to.

FAQ

Why are my red velvet crinkle cookies not crinkling? 

This might be because your oven isn’t hot enough. It is important to preheat the oven so it reaches optimum temperature and avoid opening the oven door as they bake.

How do I know that my crinkle cookies are ready? 

Usually, the cookies are ready when you start to see the crinkling and cracking on the top of the cookie. If you gently poke the edges they should feel set.
