One day I was in the breakroom at work and in the refrigerator were some bright pink cookies on a plate. I sampled one and thought they were so yummy that I had to find the recipe. I searched on the internet and found this one. It comes from the Betty Crocker kitchen and am looking forward to making them for my family.

EXPERT TIPS:
If “pinker” color is desired, stir a drop or two of red food color into the dough or frosting…or both!

Sprinkle frosted cookies with coarse white or pink sugar.
