I just love red velvet. And I love white chocolate. And I love a good cookie. These three things were combined in this delicious and vibrant red chewy cookie.
I had a girls night with my friend the other night. And what better way to start off a girls night than to bake a fresh batch of delicious cookies. My friend just had the cutest little baby girl. She is the cutest little thing and it is getting me so excited for my little girl to get here! We had a great night talking and I always love holding her little girl. But I do have to say one of the best part of our night was eating these cookies fresh out of the oven. They were chewy and so soft right out of the oven. And the white chocolate chips completed them perfectly. It was definitely a successful girls night.
