When you think of Valentine’s day, doesn’t it just scream Red Velvet??? These Red Velvet Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies are a new favorite in our house!
When my kids and I were raising money to go to Peru I made cookies and sold them at work to my co-workers. It was kind of a win-win thing. I got to bake (which I love) and try new recipes to blog and I sold them to go into our Peru Fund. Oh yeah, and my co-workers got to eat delicious desserts for cheap. Now we’re saving money to travel to Costa Rica so I’ve started taking treats into work again. And aren’t these perfect for Valentine’s Day?
Not only are these red and festive but they are absolutely delicious. How could you go wrong with red velvet and cream cheese? Not possible.
You can roll the dough in a course sanding sugar or granulated sugar. I had sanding sugar but it wasn’t as course as I would have liked. I also ran out so I used red sanding sugar for the last pan. Either way? Deliciously awesome!
We used this super cool little spoon that we got in Peru to make a “thumbprint” in the cookie.
Don’t they look delicious?
Thanks to Ashton over on Something Swanky for this delicious recipe.
