Red Velvet Cookie with Marshmallow Half Cookie

Directions:

For Red Velvet Cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the dry ingredients – flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cornstarch and salt.
  • Using the paddle attachment for standing mixer, combine butter, white sugar and light brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.
    • Approximately four minutes.
  • Add vanilla extract and red food coloring to butter and sugar mixture.
  • In small bowl, use a fork to beat one egg and then add into butter and sugar mixture. Allow the egg to fully combine into the mixture until adding the second egg.
  • Decrease speed and beat in vinegar.
  • On low speed, add the dry ingredients until just combined without overmixing.
  • Place batter in freezer from two hours or overnight (you can bake the batter immediately, however the cookies may not rise or be as fluffy).
  • Use tablespoon to scoop the cookie dough onto the parchment paper or baking mat.
  • Bake cookies for approximately 12-15 minutes.
  • Transfer cookies to cooling rack to completely cool down.

For Marshmallow Filling:

  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter on medium heat.
  • Add marshmallows to the butter and stir with heatproof spatula until mixture is fully combined.
  • Use immediately (otherwise the mixture will become stiff and will be more difficult to work with).
    • If the mixture gets too sticky, keep the saucepan on the stove at lowest heat setting.
