    Table of Contents


    For the Cookies:

    • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
    • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
    • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon red food coloring

    For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 4 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Make the Cookie Dough:

    In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and buttermilk.

    Combine Dry Ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

    Add the red food coloring and mix until the dough is evenly colored.

    Form Cookie Dough Balls:

    Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball.

    Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each cookie.


    Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set.

    The centers may still be slightly soft.

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Make the Cream Cheese Frosting:

    In a medium bowl, beat together the softened butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

    Frost the Cookies:

    Once the cookies have cooled completely, spread a generous dollop of cream cheese frosting on the top of each cookie.


    Allow the frosting to set before serving.
