If you are a fan of red velvet cake like me , then these delectable cookies are for you so this Thanksgiving/Christmas season, are you prepared to freak out on this gorgeous cookie?

I have added white chocolate chunks for my kid, generally when I bake, I prefer semi sweet to dark chocolate chips as they complement well. Once I bake it, I find myself gorging on them like a kid :D.. yes, for these cookies really are so inviting and hard to resist. I prefer eggs while baking these cookies however this time , I have used yogurt and it’s equally good. In addition, you can add cream cheese filling. sandwich cookies and serve, they taste equally delicious

*The cookie dough should be stored in air tight container if desired to store for longer periods, they can be stored for 5 days under refrigeration and upto 2 months in freezer

**Add lemon juice if using egg, I have made the cookies with yogurt as shown in the video and used lemon juice since my yogurt was unsour
