Red velvet cookies: My Love is Red ^^

 Valentines's Day is coming, and it will be great to bake for someone you love.

"だいすき" means I love You ^^
Not only for lovers, family members and friends will be happy to receive a wonderful homemade gift from you ^^. I think about baking something lovely for the Valentines's day too, and this cookie is the right answer (for me), red color always relates to passionate love, hehe. Actually you can stamp the cookie with any words or pictures that you like, this cookie won't puff after baking so the indentation will stay. 
Anyway the key is don't let the cookie soften before baking, you should refrigerate it until firm before baking, so the cookie won't spread much and it will be beautiful.
The taste of the cookies is not traditional red velvet, ^^, there is no cocoa in the dough, the taste is tangy but rich. Serve it with hot tea will be great and don't forget to whisper "I love you", haha.

hey Pook, the cookie is so lovely... :)
but i was wondering, since it uses cream cheese for the filling, will the cookies get soggy after some hours? according to your experience, how long will the cookies stay at its best?

thank you so much!

Hi, Monica
The cookies will be soften at room temperature, but keep it in the fridge can prevent this problem.
