White Velvet Cookies are a great addition to your Christmas cookie tray. An unique cookie with cream cheese as an ingredient, this cookie melts in your mouth!
My husband said: These are my new favorite cookie.
Yes, he said that. And that, my friends, is a big, big praise.
The White Velvet Cookie literally melts in your mouth. The dough was a dream to work with. It is light, soft and the cookies are just plain yummy.
I wanted to take the cookies to church to share with others. However, my family had different plans. Not that they aren’t the sharing type, but they apparently enjoyed these cookies greatly and wanted to enjoy them at home. I suppose I will have to make another batch for church.
Sorry church family.
Do you have an upcoming cookie exchange? I know I do, so I think I will have to put the White Velvet Cookies on my list of cookies to make.
I have already had a request from Cora for me to make these cookies for her birthday treats next month. (For school)
It shouldn’t be a problem, this dough was so easy to mix together and it only has a few ingredients. The frosting was only 3 ingredients and you don’t even have to spread the icing on. You can simply turn the cookie over and dip it in the frosting.
White Velvet Cookies Tips:
:: Wait until the cookies are cool before frosting them
:: You can decorate these cookies with other frosting, I just think this frosting, with it’s buttery flavor, it perfect for these cookies
:: Do not overcook. We like our cookies slightly under cooked and these cookies are the perfect example. They will be soft and moist and delicious!
