Red Velvet Snowflake Cookie

Red Velvet Snowflake Cookies @createdbydiane

It was snowing in my kitchen all weekend.

Well it could have snowed outside, it’s been really cold here in Southern California…..you’d think we were somewhere else.

Since it was cold outside it felt like the perfect SNOW day to me.

Well, that is in the kitchen at least.

I couldn’t wait to get rolling out the dough to start on some Christmas cookies this year.

I just love snowflake cookies and since these cookies are already red, there wasn’t a need for the whole cookie to be iced in a solid color first. This was a huge time saver and allowed me to make many more cookies.

The bright red color of these cookies is just perfect for this time of year!

 

Red Velvet Cookie Dough in Mixer

 

I made a double batch of my red velvet cut out cookie dough and well, I think it’s almost time for a larger mixer, If I wish hard enough maybe Santa will bring me one!

 

Red Velvet Cut Out Cookies

I use Lorann’s Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion and it imparts flavor and color, so it’s the perfect one step red velvet helper!

 

I roll and cut out the cookies to 1/2″ and place them on parchment lined baking sheets.

The cookies are brighter red when baked.

Often I will bake the cookies on one day and ice them the next. Especially when I make multiple batches of cookies.

Royal Icing Recipe, I added a few drops of Ivory Americolor Food Coloring.

 

 

Red Velvet Christmas Snowflake Cookies with Royal Icing @createdbydiane

I love how these cookies look “antiqued” the red crackles a bit and with the cream colored icing they look a bit old fashioned. Perfect for Christmas time.

 

I piped the icing on with a number 2 icing tip.

Allow icing to dry before staking or wrapping cookies about 8-10 hours.

    Hi Diane – I love your site and all of the recipes and creative tips that you share – thank you!

    I was about to buy the ivory Americolor gel paste for the royal icing but the color sample looks almost flesh-tone. Does it take on the ivory color when mixed in the icing?

      Ivory is a pretty color and doesn’t look like flesh colored when it’s mixed, I think the swatch is dark on the bottle. I just use a small amount and the ivory color is really pretty.
