Final post for 2014! It has been a great year, celebrated a year of being married to an amazing man, decided to blog, travelled a lot...everything i could ask for and much more..I thank god almighty for all of it!!
I wish everyone a very Happy & Prosperous New Year!!

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies-- Cutest cookies ever..for bidding adieu to 2014. Serve them at your new year eves party, every single guest shall be floored by its beauty!!

Start by creaming room temperature butter and sugar. Add one egg at a time and beat no more than 3 minutes on a medium speed.

Add red food coloring and beat again till it blends completely.

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder. Blend then well.  Transfer to a glass bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for no more than 3 hours.

Make balls out of the dough using mini icecream scoop or just spoon, roll in powdered sugar, tap off the extra powdered sugar and line in a baking sheet. Bake at 350F for no more than 12 minutes. I baked exactly for 11 minutes, allowed it to cool in baking sheet for 10 minutes and transfer into a wire rack for another 15 minutes. These cookies stay fresh for 4 days at room temperature in an air tight tin, else you can always refrigerate.


All Purpose Flour- 2 cups

Baking powder- 1tsp

Baking soda- 1/2 tsp

Cocoa powder- 1/2 cup

Eggs- 2

Red food coloring- 2 tbsp

5 tbsp  unsalted butter

1.5 cups sugar

Powdered sugar(confectionary sugar) for rolling.


Preheat the oven at 350 F(180 C). Cream room temperature butter and sugar.  Beat one egg at a time. Add red food color. Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder. Mix well.  Transfer into a glass bowl and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for no more than 3 hours. Make small balls, dip in powdered sugar, tap off excess and arrange in baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper and bake for 9-11 minutes. Allow it it cool.
