A Valentine's Day Special Treat

These very special Red Velvet Cookies make an awesome Valentines Day treat! I wish I could take credit for them however I borrowed the photos and recipe from my fellow mommy and blogger The Crazy Mom Cook. She has some pretty delectable stuff on her blog. Check her out at:  http://thecrazymomcook.wordpress.com and see below. Thanks TCMC!

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons red food coloring
1 teaspoon corn starch
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 bag 12oz. M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
Mix butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add vinegar, mix until combined. Add egg, mix until combined. Add vanilla and red food coloring, mix until combined.
To the butter mixture, add flour, cocoa, corn starch, baking powder and salt. Mix on low until combined. Fold in M&M’s.
Scoop small balls of dough onto a baking sheet. Top with additional M&M’s.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on baking sheet for a few minutes and then move to a wire rack until completely cooled. Enjoy!
