What does red velvet taste like?

While it is often regarded as a chocolate cake, some insist it has a distinctive flavor.

What sets it apart is the addition of red food coloring and, in some recipes, a hint of vanilla. The result is a cake with a subtle chocolate flavor balanced with sweetness.

There are many red velvet recipes out there; each one will taste unique.

How do I freeze baked cookies?

To freeze-baked cookies, allowing them to cool down before storing them is important.

Arrange the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer until they are frozen solid.

Once frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag, removing any excess air to prevent freezer burn. Labeling and date the container to keep track of its shelf life is recommended.

When ready to enjoy, thaw the cookies at room temperature for a few hours before serving.
