Can you guys believe that Valentines Day is on Friday? I can’t, that’s for sure. I’m normally not the one to make V-Day recipes (Valentine's Day recipes include anything red velvet, heart-shaped, pink or red) but something about these cookies stood out. Maybe I was a little hungry, but suddenly I wanted to make these cookies. As I browsed the recipe, it seemed a little complicated. Making the dough, refrigerating the dough, then baking the cookies and dipping them in melted chocolate seemed like a lot. Surprisingly, these cookies where fast and easy, score! There are a couple notes I thought would be helpful for you guys:
1) When you go to freeze your dough, keep it in an extra 30 minutes if you can so that it isn’t quite so sticky. The longer you refrigerate your dough, the less stickier it will be.
2) I added 3/4 t. food coloring and the cookies were extremely dark. I would use about 1 t. for a lighter red and 3/4 t. for a dark dark red.
3) I used a 1 T. cookie scoop and my cookies were bite size, if you want larger go with 1 1/2 T like the recipe calls for.
4) To make your cookies smooth on top, gently press on the top of the cookies with two fingers before you bake them.
