Red Velvet (White Chocolate Chip) Cookies

2¼ C flour
3 T cocoa powder
1½ tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
½ C butter, softened to room temperature
1/3  C shortening
1 C sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1½ tsp white vinegar
1½ tsp vanilla
1 T red food coloring
1½ C white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°

Combine flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Using a stand mixer, cream butter, shortening and sugar until fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add egg and egg yolk. Next, add vinegar, vanilla and food coloring, mixing until just combined.

Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Stir in half the white chocolate chips.

Scoop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Press a few extra white chocolate chips on top of each cookie, flattening cookies somewhat as you do so.

Bake 8 minutes; transfer to wire rack to cool.
