If red velvet is high on your list of favorite dessert flavors, we have a new cookie recipe you’ll definitely want to try!

These Cooking Classy Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies combine the chocolaty flavor of red velvet and its rich red color with the crispy, tender texture of shortbread. The cookies are then dipped in white chocolate and topped with festive sprinkles. And while this cookie recipe is perfect for the holidays, you can add pink sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, blue for the 4th of July, or leave them without sprinkles for a simple but beautiful red and white cookie anytime.

The recipe calls for unsweetened cocoa powder, red food coloring, powdered sugar, lemon juice, white chocolate and some basic ingredients like flour, butter and salt. Cookies take 45 minutes of prep time and 24 minutes of cooking time, plus about 3.5 hours of chilling time in the refrigerator.
