Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes



  • 3 cups Lehi Mills Peacock flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp milk or buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Juice of ½ small lemon
  • .25 fl oz red food coloring (equal to one small vial)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

Mix in eggs 1 at a time, blending until combined after each addition. Mix in milk, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and red food coloring.

Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix slowly until just combined. Fold in white chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill 1 hour or until firm enough to shape into balls.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Pour powdered sugar into a bowl or a bag. Remove dough from refrigerator, and shape into 30 medium-sized balls (about 2 1/2 Tbsp each).

Roll cookie dough balls into powdered sugar and evenly coat. Place on greased or lined cookie sheet and bake for 13 – 14 minutes. Let rest on cookie sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
