Last year for Easter I made Ava some adorable Chocolate Animal Crackers. These are a tasty treat and a great way to limit the sugar overload hiding in the Easter Eggs. I had a discussion with the Easter Bunny and this year Ava’s Easter Eggs will be filled with Annie’s Bunnies Whole Wheat Organic Crackers, a couple pieces of chocolate and a few quarters to go in her new piggy bank.
After my chat with the Easter Bunny something came over me……and a few hours later we were eating cookies! The real deal, butter, sugar, flour – cookies!! This recipe is not healthy but baking cookies with your wee tot and making a mess in the kitchen is SO happy. And in my world, happy is healthy; therefore, I declare this a healthy activity!
Strawberry Sugar Cookies
- 1/2 cup Butter, softened (YIKES!!!!)
- 1/2 cup Sugar (Yikes again!!!)
- 4 Tbsp. Strawberry Puree
- 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 3 cups Flour
My original idea was to use a strawberry puree to make the cookies a nice pink color. Well, that didn’t really work, but they are super tasty and they do have a hint of pink color and little speckles of strawberry throughout. Ava and I think they are delicious! And she is so proud of the cookies she decorated!
