We all love some red velvet goodness in our lives now don’t we! Having already shared my favorite red velvet cake recipe, sharing my go-to red velvet cookies recipe only seemed fair.

These cookies are soft and chewy, and are topped with delicious white chocolate chips. Usually, red velvet pairs amazingly with cream cheese frosting, so if you like, you can frost these red velvet cookies.

If you choose to frost your cookies, remember to reduce the amount of white chocolate chips so your cookies don’t turn out too sweet.
