Yesterday my daughter and I did some baking.
I had some sour cream in the fridge and wanted to incorporate it. I also have some beetroot powder that I have been experimenting with to use as a colouring.
And this was the result, very cake like pink cookies that were soft and slightly sweet.
We topped them with a white chocolate drop or some magic fairy sprinkles!
Pink Sour Cream Cake Cookies
1/2 cup softened butter
2/3 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla paste
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp beetroot powder
Preheat oven to 180C. Mix the beetroot powder with the sour cream and vanilla. Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix in egg until combined. Fold through the sifted dry ingredients and pink sour cream mix alternately. Roll into balls, place on lined baking tray and flatten. Decorate with sprinkles or chocolate. Bake for 8 minutes, cool on wire rack. Makes about 30 and best eaten day of baking.
