Pink Party Cookies Recipe

11

Looking for a unique, delicious cookie recipe? Pink Party Cookies are a divine combination of two delightful flavors: almond and cherry, packaged in one pretty, petite sandwich-style cookie.

My husband’s family first introduced these mini delights to me, and it was love at first bite. When we were still dating, my husband and I often made these cookies together in my dinky little kitchen. While we always managed to have fun baking them, the best part was eating them of course.

I believe these cookies might contain magical falling-in-love properties, as my husband and I survived the long distance portion of our relationship and have now been happily married for almost ten years, all while indulging in these bites of pink deliciousness a few times a year.

I think we can all agree there is no such thing as too much romance in the world, so the time has come, my friends, to share with you the scrumptious Pink Party Cookies cookie recipe. They may just help you fall in love all over again.

  1. So happy to find this! I grew up in Minnesota too, and my mom made pink party cookies too. I recently lost the recipe, so THANK YOU for posting it. The only thing different in our recipe is my mom added butter to the icing. I think it is the almond flavoring that really makes this special.
