Shazzy karim of He chops; She cooks has suggested Red Velvet theme for this month HBC Challenge. I'd love to try the Red Velvet Cake but none like sweets here. I am seriously looking for someone near by, so that I can bake and give them. My pantry may go without potatoes but not without Oreos. My son likes it a lot but doesn't like cookies much. Well; I made these crinkles in small quantities and I really liked stuffing , baking and eating the crinkles.
Yields: 5-6 large cookies
Butter 1/4 cup about 50g
Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup
Buttermilk 1 tbsp
Vanilla Powder 1/2 tsp
Red food color 1/2 tbsp
Cocoa Powder 2 3/4 tbsp
All Purpose Flour 1 cup - 1 tbsp
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda a pinch
Salt 1/4 tsp
Powdered Sugar for dusting
In a bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients and keep it aside.
Cream Butter and Sugar until well combined. In a stand mixer or electric mixer, add egg until well beaten and combined. Add butter milk and beat for few more seconds.
Now add in the dry ingredients little by little until it is well combined. If the dough is more sticky, add little more flour and again give it a mix.
Grease your hands well with butter. Pinch a round tablespoon of dough. Gently flatten and place one oreo upon it. Pinch 1tbsp+1tsp of the dough and place it on the oreo. Take it together and roll it in between your palms like a ball. Now gently flatten it and cover the oreo well together for the holes, if any, with the dough.
Coat it well with the powdered sugar and place it in arranged cookie sheet. Follow the same with the remaining batter.
Preheat the oven at 190 deg C for 10 minutes. Place the sprinkles with enough space in between; these are quite large. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until done.
