Red Velvet Cookies


Hi All, So sorry I dissapeared for a little while. Life came in the way. Granni was admitted into hospital again with pneumonia, so we were back to our rotas and shift work at the hospital. The tough cookie fought it like a pro, and is back home now.

The hubby got Man-Flu ( that really is a thing by the way, more on this later) and my best friends brother got married. So its been a hectic ride.

But I’m back…..

…..With my famous red velvet cookies recipe.

For the ones that know me, you know what im talking about- for the ones that dont- whilst in my baking Era these along with my Lamingtons and Marshmallows were my biggest sellers. So big that when I bake them, I no longer put it on my social media, because I will get hounded by my beloved customers to make them.

So here goes:


  • (makes 15)
  • 115 grams butter (I use stork)
  • 150 grams brown suger
  • 50 grams granulated suger
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1.5 tablespoon red food colouring (gel colours are better)
  • 198grams Plain flour (yes! 198- not more or less!! trust me!)
  • 10 grams cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 150 grams choc chip chocolates
  • glitter to decorate


Cream the butter, brown suger and granulated suger together.

Add the egg and beat again

Sift the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate soda, and salt, add to the creamed mixture and beat. Once beaten add the milk.

Add the red food colouring, and 3/4 of the chocolate chips and mix.

You should get a red sticky mixture like below.

Put this sticky mixture on a clingfilm

Roll it up and put it into the fridge, usually between 1-4 hours. (for a small amount like this 1 hour is sufficient). 15 minutes before taking out mixture switch the oven on at 180degrees.

When you remove the cold mixture- it will no longer be sticky, take a handful of the dough and form into small balls like below

Put it into a baking tray with greaseproof paper below- leave space around the dough balls as cookies will form in oven.

Put into oven for 12 minutes

Once out add few choc chips on top and allow to cool on a drying rack.

Add a little glitter and enjoy with your tea.

So there you go. My Secret Famous Red Velvet recipe. No longer a secret and all yours now. So stop asking me to make you some! And make sure you drop some off to me.

Love and Regards
