Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies

Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies

A delicious Christmas cookie! These Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies are made up of a buttery, beautifully red cookie that’s dipped in a sweet, rich and creamy white chocolate and they’re finished with decorative festive sprinkles.

These are a decadent cookie people of all ages will enjoy!

Who doesn’t love shortbread? And especially so when they’re made up of those nostalgic Christmas colors and finished with white chocolate.

The dough is similar to a traditional shortbread cookie base with a few minor tweaks to give it that classic red velvet taste and rich color (reminiscent to red velvet cake).

It’s a crisp and tender cookie that keeps well for days, which makes them great for gifting. And it’s always nice to add a new cookie to the holiday cookie exchange.
