Deep Dish Red Velvet Cookies for Two
Just picture this with me, hot, chocolatey deep dish red velvet cookies for two with semi-sweet chocolate chips, fresh out of the oven, and topped with melty vanilla ice cream, and maybe drizzled with a little extra chocolate? Yes please!
Servings: 2 deep dish cookies
- 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar packed
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1/2 tablespoon buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Red food coloring I think I used about 12 drops
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Start by mixing together your dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set this aside.
Now, cream room temperature butter until fluffy - about 1 minute. Then add in dark brown sugar and granulated sugar. Once combined, add in an egg yolk, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and red food coloring (start with a couple drops and keep adding until desired color has been reached - I used gel food coloring and I think I used about 15 drops). Mix until combined, then scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl to ensure that everything has been fully incorporated. Lastly, stir in some semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Store this in an airtight container and let refrigerate for about an hour.
Once the dough has chilled, grease two ramekins and fill with the cookie dough. Make sure to press the dough down gently, so the dough has been evenly spread throughout the ramekin.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 15-20 minutes.
You'll be able to tell when the cookie is done by looking at the center. If the center is still glossy and jiggly, it's not done yet. You can also check this by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cookie.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly, before topping with your choice of ice cream!
