🔪 How to Make Pink Velvet Cookies

Making these cookies is such a breeze. The simple cookie recipe comes together quickly and easily, and the drizzle is nothing more than melted white chocolate.

Step 1: Combine the Wet Ingredients

Beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg until light and fluffy in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment.

Step 2: Combine the Dry Ingredients

In another bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, and baking soda.

Step 3: Make the Dough

Add the flour mixture a little at a time, mixing on low speed until all the flour is added. Switch to the paddle attachment and add several drops of hot pink food coloring. Continue blending until smooth and a ball begins to form.

Step 4: Bake

Scoop out balls of dough with a cookie scoop and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the cookies turn a light golden brown around the edges. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 5: Drizzle the Cookies

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave and pour it into a resealable bag. Snip off a tiny piece of the bottom corner of the bag and use it to drizzle the white chocolate across the cookies. Finish with sprinkles.

💭 Tips

  • Blend your cookie dough ingredients very well. This isn’t a dough that you can overmix.
  • Be sure to remove your cookies when the edges are golden. They’ll bake to perfection as they cool.
  • Spoon your flour loosely into your measuring cup so you get the perfect amount of flour.

⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

What does cook until golden brown mean?

Golden brown is often mistaken as more brown than gold. In reality, golden brown is actually when the dough just begins to change color. If the cookie or cake becomes an actual brown color, it’s been overcooked.

Why is my cookie dough crumbly?

You added too much flour. That’s easy to do, as most people simply scoop out the flour with their measuring cup. However, this packs the flour and results in using too much.

What is carry-over cooking?

You hear this term a lot in baking cookies. Carry-over cooking is when food, such as cookies, for example, is removed from the oven just a bit underdone. The cookies remain hot enough for long enough to keep baking as they cool on the wire rack or cookie sheet.
