These strawberry almond sprinkle cookies were created on a pure whim. It was a rainy day and the kids were bored after being stuck inside all morning. “Do you want to bake something” I offered them to stop the bickering that always seems to happen on those chilly grey in-days. “Sure” they replied and clamored around the kitchen island where the KitchenAid mixer sits and we spend countless hours measuring, mixing, and baking.

We tossed around ideas. Muffins…no. Scones…nope. Cookies…yes, please! And not just any cookies they decided, but pink sprinkle cookies! Knowing full well that I do not have a pink sprinkle cookie recipe in my recipe box, I grabbed my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe and used that as a rough starting point.
Grabbing both my extract and chocolate chip bin we quickly decided on strawberry almond cookies. Each girl sits on a stool and we pass the large mixing bowl around as we each take turns measuring, pouring, and mixing. A few snitches here and there (quality assurance, you know) and pretty soon we had mixed up delightfully pink and tasty cookie dough. With a healthy splash of Sprinkle Pop sprinkles, we were soon scooping and baking.
And let me tell you…I pulled these cookies out of the oven and practically melted with the delicious aroma of strawberry and almond. Soft and chewy centers full of melty white chocolate and fun sprinkles. Yep, these were a winner. So good in fact, I had to package them up and give them away to the neighbour. I hope you love them as much as we did!
