Red velvet crinkle cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Red Food Color
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • nonstick cooking spray

Directions

In medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, food color and vanilla extract; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Refrigerate 4 hours.

Heat oven to 350° F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in confectioners’ sugar to completely coat. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are puffed. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
