So autumn colored my home pink last Sunday! Pink? Yes, with pink chocolate chip cookies! I call these lovely ones My Pretty Pinkies! Filled with white and brown chocolate chips with hazelnut, frozen strawberries, beetroot powder and walnuts, these are truly the perfect cookies for a girly get together and fun! The recipe is for approximately 20 cookies.
My cousin Natasja, who I sometimes call ‘Princess’ with a lot of sisterly love, came over at my place on Sunday. As always, we had fun! We can chat for hours and hours and still not be done with it. Our mothers are sisters and so are we, we always say. Recently. she has told me that one thing she really likes, is that I offer her home baked sweetness every time she comes over. Obviously I was thinking about what to serve 😉
It is so silly but I remember one thing very clearly when I think of us as children: Barbies. With Barbies, we all think of the color pink, right? So when Natasja visited me, I wanted to bake something girly and pink. I have told her about my improved cookie baking skills and practice of the last couple of weeks. Because she likes chocolate as much as I do (or more ), chocolate chip cookies were the first things that came to my mind when I thought of a pink snack.
We ate these Pretty Pinkies whilst sipping some hot chocolate milk and listening to Christmas songs. We both love Christmas and winter deeply and are also born in winter. When I invited her to come help me set up my Christmas tree, she didn’t hesitate. Yes, it is never too early for us to decorate our homes. Together we had fun decorating, singing, dancing and eating cookies. When my other sister arrived, she actually said that these were the best and most delicious cookies I had ever baked. All cookies were gone so quickly and my father with a sweettooth didn’t even get one. Oops! I said that these Pretty Pinkies were devoured by two porky pink piggies! We laughed so hard! I promised to bake dad some with the remaining dough. Still, I think that these cookies were actually feminin sweetness at its best and were eaten by the right persons.
I have made the pink dough with beet root powder that I have ordered a couple of days ago and actually wanted to use in smoothies. The powder colors the dough just a little bit. I have added frozen strawberries for color and taste too. Wow! That feeling of kneading dough with frozen strawberries and seeing that lovely color, was so satisfying! A lot of white and brown chocolate chunks made the Pinkies real Chocolate Chip cookies with a capital C! Because I love some crunch in my cookies, a couple of walnuts could not be missing.
