Ingredients in Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

  • Flour: I use all- purpose flour for this recipe, but gluten free 1:1 flour works great as well.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: The key ingredient for Red Velvet flavor. I do not recommend Dutch-processed cocoa for this recipe.
  • Baking Soda: An essential leavening agent to give the cookies fluff and structure.
  • Corn Starch: This is what keeps your cookies from spreading and getting thin and dense as they bake.
  • Salt: To boost the flavors a bit!
  • Unsalted Butter: It has to be room temperature or the cookie dough will not mix together properly. Plant butter works great in this recipe too.
  • Sugar: This recipe uses both granulated and brown sugar for sweetness.
  • Egg: Same as the butter, make sure it is at room temperature or the cookie dough will not mix together properly.
  • Vanilla Extract: Use a high quality extract.
  • Red Food Coloring: Essential to achieve the iconic bright red color!
  • Vanilla Golden Oreos: I love this recipe with golden Oreo thins but you can use traditional chocolate or other types of sandwich cookies. I do recommend using the “thins” version of Oreos.
  • White Chocolate Chips: These add a sweet creaminess to the cookies. You can use chopped white chocolate from a bar or even other types of chocolate.

How to Make Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

You can whip these up by hand, using a hand mixer, or a stand mixer. I prefer the stand mixer because it makes these cookies even easier to make. These are basic instructions, the recipe card below will have more details and information.

  1. Preheat Your Oven and Prep Your Pan– I prefer using a silicon baking mat but parchment paper works just as great.
  2. Whisk Dry Ingredients. All- purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, corn starch, and salt.
  3. Cream Together Wet Ingredients. Beat butter and sugars together, then the eggs and vanilla until fully incorporated.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures. Stop mixing the dough when the dry ingredients are almost completely incorporated.
  5. Add Red Food Coloring. Make sure it is fully incorporated, you don’t want the food coloring bleeding onto the Oreos.
  6. Fold in Vanilla Oreos and White Chocolate Chips. I like to do this part by hand with a spatula, just because.
  7. Scoop and Form. Take a two tablespoon scoop of dough and form into a round, thick, flat disk. Remember there is no spreading here so what you form is what you get!
  8. Bake. 10 to 12 minutes at 350° F. The cookie tops should be set and the bottom edges slightly browned in color
  9. Cool. Now I know you want to dive right into these Red Velvet Oreo cookies but you can’t. Allowing the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for at least ten minutes and then to room temperature is so important. This allows them to firm up to that perfect texture.

Lastly and most importantly! Try not to eat them all in one day. All I am saying is you have got to savor the flavor. HA!

How To Freeze Cookies and Bake Later

These Red Velvet Oreo Cookies are so EASY to freeze and bake at a later date.

All you have to do is make the dough and pre-portion into cookies. Next, place them on a baking sheet and throw them into the freezer until they are solid. Place the cookie dough portions into a freezer bag or airtight container. Don’t forget to label the bag with the name, date, and how many portions there are. Freeze them for up to three months.

When you are ready to bake the cookies, place them frozen on a prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350° F for ten to fifteen minutes until golden brown. Keep in mind it does take a few minutes longer to bake because they are cold.

Frequently Asked Questions About Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

What does red velvet taste like?

Red velvet is red in color and velvety in texture. It gets it’s iconic flavor from a mixture of cocoa, vinegar, buttermilk, and sometimes cream cheese. It tastes like an sweet and slightly acidic cocoa flavor. In my opinion, this recipe did not need vinegar or buttermilk because the vanilla Oreos magically added those flavor notes. This also cut down on the ingredients we needed. YAY!

How do I store leftover Red Velvet Oreo Cookies?

These cookies are best stored in an airtight container on the counter and they will last for around 7 days. If stored in the refrigerator they will last up to 2 weeks. You can even freeze your leftover cookies and they will last up to 3 months. Eat any leftovers at room temperature or pop them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds.

Do I have to use Golden Oreos?

Not at all! Use any flavor Oreos or sandwich cookies you prefer. Some great options are traditional Oreos, red velvet Oreos, funfetti Oreos, etc. I like using Oreo thins for cookies because you get just the right amount of cookie and filling distributed throughout the dough.

How do I get round cookies?

If your cookies are a little lopsided after they have baked, try this (immediately once they come out of the oven)! Grab a large round cookie cutter, glass, or anything else. Using a circular motion swirl the cookie around inside your chosen round object to reshape them.
