2nd Annual Cookie Swap...

I decided on the Red Velvet Cookies... Here's the recipe...


  • 1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon red food color
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts


Mix cookie mix, cocoa, butter, sour cream, food color and egg in bowl until soft dough forms.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Frost cooled cookies with frosting. Sprinkle with nuts. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

**It did not make 36 cookies...more like 24**

It was so messy to make I had to wear gloves...
Ashley had it set up so cute...
There was a tie between the best cookies, mine and Emily... we had a tie breaker and...Emily won...
