Red Velvet is not stranger here. I have made both  cake and cupcake versions within the last year. When topped with a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting they are undeniably the best.

The pair is like a match made in culinary heaven. The slight chocolate flavor of the cookie with the sweet and smooth frosting is irresistible. Which is why I am excited to add red velvet cookies to my list of recipes.
