Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

These days, it seems like almost every grocery store has its own aisle devoted to cookies. The list goes on and on: chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sugar, and peanut butter. But there’s one classic cookie that never seems to go out of style: red velvet cake mix cookies.

There’s a reason these cookies have stood the test of time. They’re soft, fluffy, and decadent, with a slightly tangy flavor that sets them apart from other chocolate cookies. Best of all, they’re easy to make – even for beginners. In this article, I will share my favorite recipe for my favorite Betty Crocker red velvet cake mix cookies.

Why Are These Cookies Special?

Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies are special because they’re so easy to make and are the perfect treat for any occasion. They are made by combining powdered red velvet cake mix with a few simple pantry staples like butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. 

These cookies are not only delicious but make an excellent presentation as well! The bright red color of the cake mix makes them stand out and adds an extra flair to any dessert platter. In addition, the cookies are incredibly moist and fluffy, with a delicious red velvet flavor. 

And finally, the cookies are also highly versatile, meaning that they can be enjoyed both as a sweet snack or as a dessert.

How to Make Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies?

One of my favorite things to make is cookies. I love the challenge of finding the perfect recipe and then tweaking it until it’s just right. And my all-time favorite cookies are Betty Crocker’s Red Velvet Cake Mix cookies and, basically, any of the Betty Crocker mixes. As you will see in a minute, this recipe is straightforward and perfect for beginner cooks. 

This is everything you need to start preparing this incredible dessert that consists of 20 cookies:

  • 1 ⅔ cup Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Step 1: Preparing the Cookie Mixture

Let the butter soften at room temperature. Note that you shouldn’t melt it completely because it shouldn’t be hot and liquid, just softened.

Turn on the oven to preheat at 350°F (180°C). In the meantime, mix all the ingredients together for 1-2 minutes using maximum speed.

Step 2: Making the Cookies

Use two spoons to form the balls and place them on baking paper, leaving enough space between each. They don’t have to be perfectly shaped since the mixture melts while baking, so you will get the proper cookie-shaped cookies as a final result. 

Bake for 10-13 minutes, but not longer. 

Serve them with a glass of milk. Or, if you want to go wild, put some white chocolate chips on top before baking. In addition, you can also try serving them with some cream cheese frosting or any of the Betty Crocker frostings after you get them out of the oven.

How to Store Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies?

You can store your Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies in a few different ways. 

Firstly, if you are planning on keeping them at room temperature, you should be aware that they can only last for two days because, after that, they become too hard. The important step is to cover them so they don’t lose their moisture.

You can also place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge. If you choose to wrap them in aluminum foil, ensure that you do so tightly so that the cookies don’t lose shape. Another option is to place them in the freezer. This will help them to last for a longer period. 

However, I would recommend eating them right away since they are definitely the best freshly baked.
