Kukis pertama utk raya tahun ni. Dah lama plan nak buat RV cokies ni, cuma disebabkan masa yg tidak mengizinkan, di akhir Ramadhan baru berkesempatan buat utk raya. Sebenarnya dah buat utk testing masa sebelum Ramadhan aritu, out comenya cantik tp rasanya agak manis (padahal dah kurangkan gula masa tu). K.Nor mmg kurang suka sket kalau manis2 ni dan kalau boleh tak nak galakkan anak2 dan suami makan something yg agak manis (biasa lah kalau ada background KM/diabetis ni kan). Jadi K.Nor plan nak buat sekali lg tengahari smlm dgn mengurangkan sukatan gula yg digunakan. Alhamdulillah.. okay la sket tahap kemanisan tu..

Resipi yg K.Nor guna ni, K.Nor amik kat Cooking Classy, hasil gugel mencari resipi RV cookies.. Memang berkenan sgt dgn RV cookies yg dihasilkannya. Dia sertakan 2 resipi RV cookies, satu yg mula2 dia buat, dan satu lg yg dia dah edit. K.Nor try resipi yg dia dah edit. Kalau nak cuba resipi yg mula2 dia buat, boleh klik kat SINI. Terpulang la pd citarasa masing2 ya.. Sally Rashid pun buat RV cookies guna resipi Cooking Classy ni, tp rasanya dia guna resipi yg pertama, kan Sally..

Ingredients : Yield: 3 dozen (k.nor buat dpt antara 75 - 80pcs)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour ~ k.nor tambah 1sb 
2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder* ~ k.nor guna 1 1/2 sb
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 Tbsp butter, at room temperature
6 Tbsp all vegetable shortening, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar ~ k.nor guna 1 cawan, buang 1 sudu besar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp red food coloring
1 1/3 cups white chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt, set aside. Add butter, shortening and sugar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer and mix on medium speed until very pale and fluffy about 4 minutes. Add egg and egg yolk and mix until combine. Add vinegar, vanilla and food coloring and mix until well blended. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combine. Mix in 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Scoop dough out by the heaping tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/2 Tbsp) and roll into balls and place on buttered or Silpat lined cookie sheets. Gently press about 6 white chocolate chips into the top of each cookie, being careful not to flatten the cookies (if you do flatten them a bit just reshape them to the height they had before adding the chips) and bake in preheated oven 8 - 9 minutes. Allow to cool several minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store cookies in an airtight container.

*If you want a more chocolaty cookie you could replace 1 - 2 Tbsp flour with an additional 1 -2 Tbsp cocoa, the red just won't be quite as vibrant. Or, you could replace the white chocolate chips with chocolate chips.
**Note: this recipe has been completely revised as of 9/7/12 due to comments stating cookies are flat and not red enough. I myself thought them to be flat. This recipe completely eliminates both of those issues. These are thick, vibrantly red and completely delicious (they better be, these were my 4th batch. Fourth times a charm right =).
***Anyone wanting the original recipe I posted back in August, I finally found it thanks to Break It, Make It, or Bake it, thanks Audrey! She posted it before I had deleted my first version and added in the revised version above. To be honest I like the ones below best I just got a few complaints that they were flat and not red enough so I added the recipe above in hopes of solving the issue for the complaints. The recipe below is also the ones that are pictured.
