Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Join the WOTV 4 Women Crew for the Holiday Cookie Exchange! Our experts are sharing their favorite holiday baking recipes including this festive red velvet treat from our Interior Remodeling expert, Jan Lehman!
The white milk glass two-tiered serving tray is an antique from my mother which I only use at Christmas. The cookies are simply Red Velvet cake cut in circles, then frosted and topped with sprinkles. I served this at a Christmas Open House this year at the store and it was a hit. Merry Christmas! -Jan
