Strawberry Champagne Sugar Cookies
When it comes to desserts, I’m usually all about chocolate. Don’t even get me started listing my favorites…chocolate mayonnaise cake…candy bar cake…Toll House cake…I could go on and on!
Yep, I’m totally a chocolate person!
That being said, every now and then I get a craving for something strawberry. And when I crave strawberry, I will not be thwarted! Must have all the strawberry..
That’s why I’m so excited about these strawberry champagne cookies!
They’re absolutely gorgeous, have a unique combination of sweet strawberry and tart champagne flavor, and the sugar sprinkle coating adds just the right amount of pop!

This is an easy and fun recipe and guaranteed to surprise the taste buds of whoever is lucky enough to receive a batch!

Strawberry Champagne Cookie Recipe
1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoon strawberry extract
2 teaspoon champagne extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Using a standing mixer or electric hand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Continue mixing, adding the egg, strawberry extract, champagne extract and vanilla extract until combined.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Gradually pour dry ingredients into your bowl of wet ingredients, mixing as you go.
Finally, add a few drops of pink food coloring until your batter is the desired color.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place into the fridge for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Pour pink sprinkles into a small bowl.
Using a medium cookie scooper, portion out the dough. Roll each ball of dough in the bowl of sprinkles.
Place dough balls onto a prepared cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes.
