- Egg– The egg is the binding agent, made sure to use an egg at room temperature.

What is red velvet and why is it so good!?
Traditionally red velvet is a type of cake that is rich in flavor with a soft and moist crumb. It is flavored with both chocolate and vanilla to bring this harmonious flavor profile to life.
This traditional cake is distinguished by its red color. Back in the day people didn’t use red food coloring but got that color from using a non-dutched, anthocyanin-rich cocoa powder and vinegar.
Today we take a little bit of a shortcut and use red food coloring but the flavor is just as good, especially if paired with Cream cheese frosting.

Frequently asked questions – FAQ
Can you make these cookies without an electric mixer or a stand mixer?
You sure can. I usually prefer an electric mixer when making these because it makes it go by much faster.
But if you want to try making these red velvet chocolate chip cookies without, make sure your butter is softened and beat it well with the sugar and eggs to get everything properly emulsified.
Can you make red velvet desserts without red food coloring?
Red velvet is called red velvet because it is red. So If you’re wanting to make a redvelvet dessert make sure to use red food coloring.
Of course, it is gonna taste just as good without the food dye but it won’t look the part so make sure to use red food coloring!

What can I substitute for corn starch?
Flour 1:1 ratio
There are amazing! I’ve had to make them four times this week, as they keep disappearing! Love them!
So glad you enjoyed these Monica!
Please note – when you double the recipe the flour in grams does not change. I weighed the flour as recommended on the doubled amount on the recipes and the cookies were a total disaster. When I reviewed what I had done, I went back to the single batch and noticed the flour amount in grams was the same. Please make sure this gets changed for those of us who weigh rather than measure. To end on a positive note, they taste divine, they are just flat!
Hi Valissa! So sorry to hear you had this problem but the flour measurement doubles when you click the x2.
Wow. Wow. Wow. These taste amazing. I made them with half the corn starch and without the chocolate chips. I instead topped it with a bit of cream cheese icing. They were so soft and decadent with great flavor. 10/10 recipe, and I will definitely be making these again in the future. Can’t wait to see what I make of yours next!!!
Thank you so much! I’m glad you like them!
Loved this recipe so much! I bake a lot but this is the first time that when I make BIG cookies, they stay thick and don’t flatten!! They came out super chewy and decadent – not cakey at all! Definitely my new favourite cookie recipe <3
So glad to hear that!
Can I skip the white vinegar if I don’t have it?
Yes you can, just use water instead.
Seriously the BEST Red Velvet Cookie ever! I made 20 cookies and sandwiched them together with my buttercream/cream cheese frosting. They are oh my goodness delicious! Thank you for sharing your recipes!
BEst compliment ever!! Than kyou so much Nina!
So, this makes just 8 cookies? Can you double the recipe or make them smaller without compromising the taste and essence of the cookies?
Yes you can! Just bake them for a few minutes less 🙂
Better than Crumbl when you make them yourself 😊 I was worried about them spreading too much but they didn’t at all and even had to flatten them a little. I’ll definitely be making these again once they’re gone!
Homemade always winS!!!
My favourite!! Taste better than I expected them to and so simple to make. Thanks a lot
So glad to hear you enjoyed them, Kuslum!
LOVED THESE! Super easy and my family devoured them 🥰
I love it! thank you so much for trying them and letting me know everyone loved these!
delicious! one of my favs, so creamy and good my family finished them so quickly and were begging me to make more!
I love hearing this! Thank you so much for sharing Caroline 🙂
Definitely recommend!! Make sure keep a close eye on the cookies around that 9-10 minute mark, because the white chocolate chips burn easily. Other than that, the cookies were so decadent, thick and chewy! One of my new favorites!
Thank you so much for sharing this thorough review, Katie! Which chocolate chips did you use for this recipe? I know that some brands burn faster than others.
So so happy you loved these cookies!
Can I make this without using brown sugar
Hi there! Brown sugar is definitely a must to give you that chocolate chip cookie texture. Soft and gooey while still having a stable body!
