Single Serve Red Velvet Cookies
Chewy red velvet white chocolate chunk cookie dough perfect for 2 cookies. Crispy and fudgy in every bite but very easy to make.
These cookies are so simple so make but they are extremely delicious. The ingredients are pantry friendly which means you already have them sitting in the cupboard right now. You don’t need any fancy equipment to bring them together either. The only ingredient which you will need to get most likely would be red food coloring. I have used food gel here so you don’t need a lot, a tiny pinch goes a long way.
What ingredients do you need to make these Single Serve Red Velvet Cookies?
Red Food color –
The recipe is a red velvet cookie hence we need the red food color. I have used a food gel but you can use a powder or even red food coloring liquid. It must be red though, pink will not achieve the red color we are after int his recipe. If you are using color or powder you might need to increase the quantity to achieve the red color. Always add a little more and mix well before adding extra. We cannot take the color out but we can keep increasing tiny amounts as we make the dough.
I have used all purpose flour, you can use self raising flour, cake flour or gluten free flour mix as well. I love using Bob’s red mill gluten free flour mix. I have also used 5 tbsp flour and 1 tbsp corn flour to keep the cookie tender and soft.
Cocoa powder –
It must be unsweetened cocoa powder. Dutch processed or note doesn’t matter. You cannot skip this ingredient as it is a must for that classic red velvet flavor.
Baking soda –
I wouldn’t recommend skipping this ingredient as it is essential to make the cookie soft and fluffy almost like a cake but still maintaining the integrity of a cookie.
I have used a neutral oil that doesn’t have any flavor you can use melted butter as well.
I have used a combination of brown and white sugar as I was the chewiness from the brown sugar but the crunchiness from white sugar.
This have to be thick yogurt, we don’t want to add to much moisture into the cookie dough. It acts like a binding agent, you could use one egg yolk instead of the yogurt, or a flaxseed egg (1 tbsp flaxseed powder mixed with 2 tbsp water until gloopy).
A tiny drop activates the baking soda and yogurt making it fluffy and giving it a buttermilk flavor.
White chocolate –
I have used white chocolate chunks, you can use chips or dark chocolate. Milk chocolate works well here too.
What equipment do you need to make this Single Serve Red Velvet Cookie?
A mixing bowl and fork to make the dough. I baked the cookies in an oven on a lined baking tray with baking paper. Like all cookies these need to cool on a wire rack for the best results also we don’t want the cookie get hard on the hot baking tray.
How to make these Single Serve Red Velvet Cookies?
Preheat the oven to 180 ℃ and line a baking tray with baking paper. In a small bowl add the oil, brown sugar, white sugar and mix well until the sugar is dissolved. Add the yogurt and mix. Add the red food coloring and mix well. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and vinegar. Stir to combine. Add the white chocolate chunks and stir to combine. Divide the dough into 2 parts and roll into a ball. Place on a baking tray and add more chocolate on top. Bake for 8 – 10 mins until they have spread and puffed-up. The top will be dry to touch but if you press into the cookie it will be soft. Do not over bake these cookies they can get dry very fast. Transfer them to a wire rack and let them cool down before serving with a glass of milk.
Storing these Single Serve Red Velvet Cookies
It is a single serve recipe that makes two cookies hence you don’t need storage instructions as it should be over but if you have a cookie leftover, transfer it to a ziplock bag and store it at room temperature for 2 days. I wouldn’t recommend storing it longer as it will dry out.
