This past weekend, my husband and I went to Iowa to visit my brother and sister-in-law. While the boys were out golfing, us girls decided to make something that was really easy, but different than just a regular cookie. I love red velvet and I don't make it very often because my husband doesn't have much of a sweet tooth. However, I was extremely happy to not have to share these cookies with him. They were delicious and turned out perfect.
