Ingredients
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp strawberry extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pink gel coloring
  • Pink sprinkles
  • White candy melts
Instructions
  1. In an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar. Using a separate bowl, combine the egg with the strawberry and vanilla extracts. Beat together then pour into the butter/sugar mix. Mix well.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly add it, ½ cup at a time, to the mixer until fully combined. Now you should have a nice dough. It shouldn’t be too sticky, so add more flour if it sticks to your finger when pressing it.

  4. Roll the dough out into a log, and then cut it into three sections.

  6. Roll each section into a ball then poke your fingers in to create a small hole. Add your gel coloring a little at a time until you achieve a color you like.

  8. I chose three different shades of pink. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

  10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. Roll the dough into approx. 1.5” balls, then press a candy melt into the center of each ball. Next roll them back up into balls (with the candy melt inside).

  12. Pour your various pink sprinkles into small bowls and coat each ball with a good layer, then place it back onto the baking sheet.

  14. Once all the balls are sprinkled, use the bottom of a pint glass to press the cookies down into a round disk.

  16. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Makes approx. 2-dozen.

Notes
Since I can’t possibly eat all these myself, I packaged them up as Valentine gifts using wide-mouth mason jars, pink ribbon and custom [url href=”https://www.evermine.com/labels/preview/SPRF12-67/” target=”_blank”]labels[/url] and [url href=”https://www.evermine.com/tags/preview/HTRF23-67/” target=”_blank”]tags[/url] from [url href=”https://www.evermine.com/” target=”_blank”]Evermine[/url].
