More pink cookies in honor of Valentine’s Day! I’m on a kick, I guess. This recipe is heavily inspired by this recipe at Chocolate, Chocolate and More so be sure to go check it out. I think Joan made a very versatile recipe and I encourage you to experiment with it! Aside from a slight negligible change here and there, I did change up the flavors for a raspberry vanilla cookie instead of a cherry white chocolate cookie, and dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate.
I actually made this and last week’s cookies within two days of each other so my dad could take a bunch of cookies to share with his coworkers, and my dad was so kind as to bring me several bags of phenomenal Sta-Green garden soil because I am mere weeks from starting to turn up the soil for my 2013 garden. I’ve done some light reading to refresh and plan, picked out my seeds, and all I need is for the weather here in Kansas City to warm up a touch so I can get cracking. I’ll be starting my seeds in doors. This can’t happe nfast enough!
