One of my favorite parts of holiday baking is seeing my center island loaded with tons of cookies. There’s something about baking that just keeps me in the Christmas spirit. These come together pretty quickly, you just have to wait for the cookie to cool before adding your frosting.

The cookie itself is soft and you won’t be able to stop eating at one. Red Velvet Stuffed Cookies are definitely my kid’s favorites. Save the recipe and make them again for Valentine’s Day – just don’t add the peppermint. You could substitute sprinkles instead.
