Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies with White Chocolate Buttercream

This might be the first year that the presents are all wrapped days before the holiday even begins. That never happens. Usually I’ve gotten fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed that all the packages I ordered will be delivered in time for Christmas. Usually while the kids track Santa I’m checking the UPS, FedEx and USPS websites multiple times a day to track the packages to make sure they will show up in time for Christmas.

Our kids only have one week off this year for the holiday while I have two. It’s nice to be able to participate in all of the activities they have going on this week. Last year was a juggling match to get to all of the choir concerts, class parties and class activities the kids had along with my work schedule.

This year we are also getting all the neighborhood cookies ready for new homes. And this year, we are making red velvet crinkle cookies with white chocolate buttercream. They are perfect and taste amazing!
