From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  Red
Velvet Cookies are a perfect addition to a
Christmas cookie tray.  Red velvet cake is
traditionally topped with cream cheese frosting, but
I want a cookie that doesn't need refrigeration, so I
use
cookie frosting.
Cream:
1/2 c butter
1/4 c crisco
1 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
Add:
1 egg

mat or parchment.

Let set 2 minutes before moving.
