Best Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

These Red Velvet Oreo Cookies are the ultimate flavor dream team. With chewy, slightly crisp edges, melt in your mouth gooey centers, and their striking bright red hue, no cookie lover will be able to resist. They are loaded with crushed Oreo cookies and made with cocoa powder for that iconic, subtle cocoa red velvet taste.

In a medium bowl, shift together the flour, cocoa powder,  cornstarch, and baking soda. Whisk in the kosher salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the melted butter and both sugars with the paddle attachment on medium high until combined.

With the mixer on medium speed, add in the eggs one at a time mixing until fully combined. Add in the vanilla extract and food coloring with the last egg.

With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture in 3 additions, mixing until just combined. After adding the last of the flour mixture, mix until you only see a few streaks.

Remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer and add in the semisweet  chocolate chips, Oreo crumbs, and crushed Oreos. Using a rubber spatula, fold everything together until just combined. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours.

Measure out 2.5 oz of dough per cookie. Lightly roll the dough into balls using the palms of your hands. Smooth out any cracks. Place the dough balls on a wax paper lined plate and place in the fridge uncovered to firm up, about 10 to 15 minutes while the oven preheats.

Bake cookies for 12 – 14 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven halfway through baking and firmly tap the baking sheet. Rotate the baking sheet and return cookies to the oven and continue to baking.

 Top the cookies with extra semisweet chocolate chips and crushed Oreos. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer the baked cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.!!
