Welcome to A Quirky Twist! With about a week until St. Patrick’s Day, I thought sharing these cookies would be a good idea. Also yes these cookies are really green, even though they look almost black. Originally these cookies were supposed to be red velvet and because I didn’t have any red dye they are now green velvet cookies. The recipe called for white chocolate chips, but like I said in this post I like milk chocolate chips better than white ones. It’s now two days until spring break and I’m excited for no work and more time to focus on upcoming blog content. As always the recipe is included down below.
1 stick butter, softened (1/2 cup)
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons red food coloring
1 tablespoon milk
½ cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a mixer and cream together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa, set aside.
Add food coloring more or less until you reach a desired color, add egg and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
Slowly add flour mixture in 3 additions, scraping down sides after each addition. If mixture is too thick, you can add more than 1 tablespoon of milk. Add more or less depending on your consistency. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll batter into balls/scoop with a small batter/ice-cream scoop and place on a pan.
Place the pan in the oven for around 8 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie begin to lift up off the pan.
