Yummy! These red velvet b/w cookies are my favorite! They were seriously delicious. Thing is, once I started baking them I thought it would just not work out. BUT. Frosting just did all the difference in the world. I will make these whenever I can from now on!
Guess where I got the recipe? My current favorite girl online, of course, Joy The Baker. I guess it originally came from Rachel Ray. We wont take that against the cookies though.
Red Velvet Black And White Cookies
by Joy The Baker
makes 10 large cookies
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
5 Tablespoons butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
For Vanilla Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Teaspoon light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For Chocolate Glaze
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
3 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease and flour the pan well so the cookies don’t stick. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
Using a mixer, 5 Tablespoons of butter with the granulated sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg, food coloring and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk until smooth.
Place 1/4-cup scoops of batter 2 inches apart of the prepared baking sheet, spread the batter out with a butter knife, so they’re not completely flat but look like the pictures below. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry, 12 to 15 minutes. Let the cookies sit for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool.
To make the glazes-
In a bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of corn syrup and 2 tablespoons hot water, until smooth.
In a seperate bowl, melt the butter and the chocolate in a microwave for about 1 minute. Add the corn syrup and stir until smooth.
Can this be more simple people?
Once the cookies are cooled, face them all bottom side up of a clean surface. Spread half of the cookie with vanilla glaze and the other half with chocolate glaze. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to set.

This is THE cookie. I think it has to be refrigerated though, and let it sit outside for five minutes before you eat it. Maybe in cooler months it wouldn’t have to be like that though! Right now here in Utah, everything just melts without making any excuses.
