It’s that time again for “Fill The Cookie Jar” and I made one of my favorites Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies! I always make these delicious cookies for Christmas and send them out to family members all over the U.S. This will be the first time I’ve let go of my recipe to post, so everyone can see and use the recipe if you so choose to do! I have to tell you, these are a favorite of my entire family! They had a hard time believing these tasty Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies were gluten-free! It’s one of the best compliments I can get.

While making these Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies I had a couple of my grandchildren over to help! This way, when I mail out the packages to my family and friends I can put a picture in there of the grandchildren helping and sending love and blessing to everyone. Their favorite part is rolling the dough up into balls and rolling them in the powdered sugar. Needless to say, I had powdered sugar all over my kitchen, all over the floors throughout the house and especially all over my two helpers. Sorry, no picture I was busy too laughing and way to busy cleaning up! It was so worth it! Building more of the memories for the “Grammie Memory Book”.

These Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies are some delicious and beautiful cookies to serve up at any function. The outside has a little crunch while the inside is moist and chewy. The powdered sugar adds an additional sweetness that will keep you coming back for more. I suggest you make two batches and put some away in your stash spot so you can have a couple with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea for an afternoon treat or while reading a good book! Just make sure you don’t let anyone know where your hiding spot is. Hope you enjoy these Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies as much as we have.

From my kitchen to yours,

    • Hi Uma, You can substitute with flax seed (mix 1 tbsp. flax with 3 tbsp. water, allow it to sit and thicken up or 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce.

    • Thanks ManilaSpoon! They are delicious. My hubby really enjoyed them as well and he’s not gluten-free, except when I cook and bake (which is all the time).

  1. I was trying to figure out what to make for my best friend for Valentine’s day She doesn’t eat gluten. I think she will love these. They look delicious and so perfect for the occasion. Thank you – recipe has been printed!

    • Thanks Marisa! I also believe memories are more important. We’ve started a “Grammie Memory Book” to put our recipes and pictures in for them later in life. I think I have more photos of flour and chocolate all over us than pictures of their product.

  2. I think everyone has a favourite red velvet cookie recipe. Just today, I saw one that made things super easy with a store-bought cake mix as the base. Now, this one is gluten free. All bases are covered! 🙂 As always, Tina, you continue to inspire me with your gluten free options to common comfort foods. Looks delicious!
