I had to save the best for last with my Valentine’s Day meal.
After my white hot chocolate, your dessert cravings will probably be satiated, but there’s always room for a pretty little mac or two, right? ;)
These cookies are the grand finale for my Valentine’s Day meal…
Red velvet cake is a Valentine’s Day classic, and I thought it would be fun to remake the flavor into something else (if you prefer the actual cake, here’s my red velvet recipe). Macarons were the perfect choice, but I wanted to be sure to come up with a cookie that actually tastes like the cake (I’ve eaten too many macs that taste nothing like their descriptions!). These cookies definitely did not disappoint. Just like the cake, in these cookies I used a hint of cocoa powder to give them the right touch of chocolate flavor, and a cream cheese buttercream makes the perfect filling.
