Strawberry and Cream Cookies

One of my favorite charities is Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and my friend Julie from The Little Kitchen launched Good Cookies Food Bloggers’ Valentine’s Event last year for all of us food bloggers to get together to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. This is the second year of the Valentine’s event and our goal is to raise at least $3000 and this recipe for Strawberry and Cream Cookies is what I created to bring some sweetness to you and hope you will help us raise money for a great cause.

Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!  A huge thank you to these three companies: Dixie Crystals, Mediavine and OXO they have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000! Thanks to many of you, we have reached our goal. You can still donate and help us make an even bigger difference!

 

Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.

 


 

Donate here and then bake up a batch of these pretty pink cuties!

 

Strawberry and Cream Cookies

These Strawberry and Cream Cookies are a cinch to make and their pretty, pink hue is a charmer to look at too. These cookies are the perfect Valentine treat or a fun dessert to bring to your next gathering. You can easily add chocolate chips, nuts or sprinkles to change it up.
