Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite cookie dough base, and I love that it uses melted butter! It gives the cookies a really nice texture. They’re soft and gooey on the inside, and crisp on the outside. Adding an extra egg yolk to the dough also makes it a little richer and softer.

I also love the little hint of chocolate flavor from adding a little cocoa powder in place of some of the flour. The red food coloring gives the dough a rich and vibrant red velvet color. Just look at how pretty this dough is!


My secret for beautiful, puffed up cookies that don’t flatten and spread all over the baking sheet is this ingenious shaping method. I start by scooping a one inch ball of dough, then divide the ball in half and stack the two halves on top of each other (almost like building a snowman).



Seriously, these are some of the most beautiful chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever seen! The cookies have a perfect shape, and look like they came from a bakery.
