Pretty N' Pink
My preschooler was sick today and had to miss "Pink Day" at preschool. They were learning about pink stuff and the author/illustrator Bill Peet. We made the September recipe of the month pink cookies and watched Cinderella (Bill Peet animated Cinderella's mice). It was a pretty fun homeschool day, if I don't say so myself. The cookies were beautiful, my son loved the fact that they smelled like Yogos fruit snacks. I'd make the changes noted below to please kid taste buds better, but overall a really fun recipe to make with kids even as is.
Pretty N’ Pink Cookies
1 (18.25 oz) strawberry cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I'd cut it back to 1/3 cup oil and add 1/4 cup of flour)
1 cup white chocolate baking chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs; mix well. Stir in baking chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes, then remove to wire rack. Allow cookies to cool completely. Makes 3 dozen.
