To create these Red Velvet Cherry Kiss Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ½ cup of unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup of granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of red food coloring
- 12 maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry
- ¼ cup of powdered sugar for dusting
Follow these simple steps to bake your own batch of Red Velvet Cherry Kiss Cookies:
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In another bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add the egg, vanilla extract, and red food coloring to the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until a smooth dough forms.
- Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and flatten it slightly. Place a maraschino cherry in the center and wrap the dough around it, rolling it into a smooth ball.
- Repeat this process with the remaining dough and cherries.
- Place the cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set. The centers may still be slightly soft, but they will firm up as the cookies cool.
- Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
- Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cooled, dust the cookies with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
