Peppermint Red Velvet Oreos are going to be the top of your Christmas Cookie List! There is a list right?
Dish Count :: 1 Mixer, 1 Mixing Bowl, 2 Baking Sheets
Red velvet is one of those flavors that is absolutely vexing to me. It’s chocolate, but it’s not. It’s sinful, and so good. It’s a flavor you have to try and analyze, and then try again because that first bite didn’t quite make the answers clear. Then after about 15 bites in you realize half of the pan is gone and you’re no closer to the real answer of “What is the true definition of Red Velvet” then you were before – but you’re 15 cookies deep and well, it doesn’t matter – each cloying bite tasted amazing!
And that is where we find me, with yoga pants stretched too tight and a smile on my face.
My best friend had red velvet at her wedding and for years I’ve set about on a mission to “figure out” red velvet and what makes people tick about it. But why worry about “WHY” and just get to the enjoying part!!
Deborah Harroun of Taste and Tell came out with her Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook and I got to take a peek at a copy and had to make these Red Velvet Oreos! Because we’re coming up on Christmas I had to give them a little bit of a winter flair and made mine with a peppermint filling – just like the mint Oreos you find in the store – which are hands down my kyrptonite. And Deb’s cookies did not disappoint!
The whole book is filled with every imaginable red velvet creation and I’m head over heels for them all. Red Velvet lava cakes and even her own version of Red Velvet ice cream, you’re going to swoon people – SWOON!
I’m giving away a copy of Deborah’s book for this 8th Day of Holiday Cheer. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have and go take a peek at the rest of her site for inspired creations! She never ceases to amaze!
Visit Taste and Tell and tell me what recipe of Deb’s you will make!
