Red Velvet Cookies - total time 2 hours

What could be a more perfect Christmas cookie than one that is red and green?  Okay, probably sugar cookies decorated by little kids... but red velvet with green M&Ms seemed pretty perfect to me!  Plus, I had a bottle full of green M&Ms that have been sitting in my cabinet for a couple months (from Pelotonia themed event at work).  These turned out delicious!  Great for cookie swaps and Christmas dessert tables.

1.5 cup flour
1 cup sugar
.5 cup butter
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 egg
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tsp red food coloring

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat butter in mixer, add sugar, and continue to beat.  Add vanilla, egg, vinegar, and food coloring and combine.
2.  Blend in salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  Mix cocoa powder and flour together and add to wet ingredients a little bit at a time.  Hand mix green M&Ms (or chocolate chips) into dough, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
3.  Scoop onto pan in golf ball sized balls.  Add additional M&Ms or chocolate chips to the top for color contrast.  Bake for 12 minutes.
