Red Velvet Soft Sugar Cookies

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



This recipe is a play off of my Lofthouse Copycat Soft Sugar Cookies. Those cookies came out spectacular, so I knew these red velvet soft sugar cookies would do the same. It’s an adjustment that actually worked, and I’m super excited about it! Just like the lofthouse copycat cookies, these cookies are soft, yet firm. What’s so great about these cookies, and other sugar cookies like them, is that the sky is the limit on how you can decorate them. This makes them a great activity for your kiddos. With decorative adjustments here and there, they are great any time of year. Feel free to go crazy with food coloring and sprinkles. They are the perfect weekend activity and great with a tall glass of milk, or a delicious milk stout! Make them now, and feel free to double the batch…or triple…or quadruple. They certainly won’t last long!






Recipe Fun Facts:

It is very important that you let the dough chill for these cookies. Make sure you do so, for at least 2 hours. The dough can even be made a day in advance. If you are super ambitious, you can always make it way ahead of time and freeze it. This is the perfect solution for a tight schedule.

My cookies took about 12 minutes to bake. You may only need about 8-9 minutes. Keep an eye on them at the 8 minute mark and adjust the timing accordingly.

Food coloring is optional.

Frosting is necessary.

Sprinkles are mandatory.

Beer Love:

Beer: Lefthand Brewing’s Milk Stout
Brewed By: Lefthand Brewing Co.
Style: Sweet Stout
ABV: 6.0%
IBU: 25
Description: Milk and cookies go together. A good stout and cookies go together. So, what happens when you put the two together? You get a milk stout! This stout is a full-bodied wonder. It is the perfect pairing for sweet treats, which is why I love it with these cookies. It’s creamy, with slight notes of coffee. It’s even better on nitro! If you haven’t, give it a try! You won’t be disappointed. =)

  1. I’m such a looney tune. I looked at those stacked cookies and said to myself probably out loud, “How would anyone fit a cookie that tall into their mouth?”

    Then I realized they were stacked like that for photographic beauty and not for general eating. Oopsie.

    I do love red velvet cake so I’m sure these would soon be a favorite cookie!
