RED VELVET COOKIES

Ingredients:
250 grams flour
150 grams sugar
120 ml vegetable oil
2 levelled tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg
3 teaspoons liquid red food colouring
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a small bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, liquid food colouring, vinegar and vanilla, and whisk until well combined. Sift the flour and the baking powder and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the egg with the sugar and oil, on high, until the batter becomes lighter in colour and thick (it will take a few minutes). Add the cocoa mix and blend really well, until the colour is equally distributed.
Finally, add the flour mixture in a few additions, until you get a shiny and thick cookie batter that doesn't stick to your hands. Using a tablespoon or a small cookie scoop, take out portions of the batter, roll into balls and arrange on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper (you will get about 20 cookies). Bake them in a preheated oven, at 190˚C, for 8-9 minutes (mine were done after 9 minutes).
RED VELVET KOLAČIĆI

Sastojci:
250 gr brašna
150 gr šećera
120 ml ulja
2 ravne kašike gorkog kakao praha
1 jaje
3 kašičice crvene boje za kolače (tečne)
1 kašičica praška za pecivo
1 kašičica jabukovog sirćeta
1 kašičica vanile

Najpre napraviti kakao masu - sipati kakao prah, boju za kolače, sirće i vanilu i dobro promešati da se sjedini. Brašno prosejati sa praškom za pecivo i ostaviti sa strane. Jaje, šećer i ulje mutiti par minuta, dok masa ne postane gusta i svetla, dodati kakao masu pa mutiti dok se boja dobro ne rasporedi. U više navrata dodavati po malo brašna dok se ne dobije masa za keksiće, koja se ne lepi za ruke. Uzimati po kašiku mase, praviti kuglice i ređati na pleh obložen papirom za pečenje (20 keksića). Peći ih u unapred zagrejanoj rerni na 190˚C, 8-9 minuta, ne više, bitno je da ne potamne.
