Red Velvet Cookies

Nothing screams Valentine's like red & chocolate.  Therefore, Red Velvet Cookies are the perfect Valentine treat because they contain both.  I'm a big fan of red velvet.  My Mom always makes red velvet cake for special events.  It's so beautiful to look at & taste so good.  These cookies hold up that reputation.  They are sweet, velvety (of course), & dainty.  They have a wonderful cake-like texture, but their thinness keeps them from being overwhelming.  Whip up a batch of these & your honey will melt like butta'.  Here's the DL...
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons red food coloring
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together flour, baking soda & cocoa, set aside.
Cream together butter & sugars until fluffy.  With mixer on low speed add eggs, vanilla, & food coloring.  Mix well but don't allow to get too fluffy.  Slowly add the flour mixture & beat until just combined.  Use spoon to mix in white chocolate chips.
Place heaping teaspoon full balls of dough onto a grease or lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are set around the edges but still soft in the center.  Remove from oven & let cool for 1-2 minutes & then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies  Enjoy!
