I love quick and easy cookies during the holidays – anything that is simple, quick, and delicious to bring to friends and help celebrate the season!

I whipped up a batch of these Red Velvet Cookies for a Christmas party we had, and they were a big hit!

They are so simple and delicious – and the perfect easy way to indulge in your favorite Red Velvet Cake flavors without all the fuss!

I was inspired to make these after seeing my friend Alyssa’s Gooey Butter Cookies – they are a delicious, perfect treat for Christmas parties!
