12 Days of Cookies: Geoffrey Zakarian’s Red Velvet Crinkle Cookie Sandwiches

By

It’s that time again — Food Network’s annual virtual cookie swap is here! The stars of The Kitchen and the chefs in Food Network Kitchen (our bustling test kitchen) have some ideas that are bound to make it into your annual rotation. Stock up on flour and sugar — you’re gonna need 'em.

Everyone loves a red cookie during the holidays — especially when it’s the red-velvet variety. “This red velvet crinkle cookie sandwich is a crowd-pleaser for the holidays,” Geoffrey says. “It satisfies the chocolate lover and someone looking for more than your average cookie.”

And he’s being humble, as “more than your average” is definitely an understatement. A hearty smear of cream cheese frosting between two pillowy, festive cookies? Why, that sounds simply sublime to us.
