Red Velvet Crackle Cookies

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes
Yield: About 24 cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 Tbsp milk or buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla
2 tsp lemon juice
5 tsp red food coloring
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt for about 30 seconds, set aside. 
In a stand mixer cream together butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs 1 at a time, blending until combined after each addition or live on the wild side and toss the all in at once. Mix in buttermilk, vanilla bean paste, lemon juice and red food coloring. Set mixer on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. 
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill 2 hours or until firm enough to shape into balls. I skip this step often...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour powdered sugar into a bowl. Remove dough from refrigerator, scoop dough out and with hands or cookie/ice cream scoop & roll cookie dough balls into powdered sugar and evenly coat. Transfer to a silicone baking mat or parchment paper lined baking sheets and flatten slightly, then bake in preheated oven 13 - 14 minutes. Allow to rest on cookie sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
It has been way to long since I have baked so I am taking advantage of Valentine's Day to make my fiance and I some red velvet crackle cookies, which if you've followed me on social media for a while you know are my favorite cookies!
