I really wanted to do pink cookies this year. You can buy hot pink food coloring, but I figured I could just mix red and create a pink color anyway.
Well, there was a lot of trial and error. My first batch I used brown sugar and butter and that creates a not so pink color. Well, they look okay, but not the hot pink I was going for. So instead of trying a whole new batch and possible waste ingredients, I decided to do a single serve. And it worked! You need all white ingredients to keep it a hot pink, so I used shortening, white sugar and milk.

Singe Serve Pink Cookie
These could work for girl baby showers and breast cancer awareness as well as Valentine’s.
1/2 tbsp. shortening or butter
Red food coloring
2 tsp. sugar
3 tbsp. flour
1/16 tsp. baking soda or cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
Milk (to achieve right consistency)
Handful of chocolate chips
Mix shortening and red food coloring until you reach desired color. Add sugar, flour, soda and salt until mixed. Add milk (not very much) until you reach desired consistency. Stir in chocolate chips and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Even if it looks underbaked, take it out because it does continue to bake on the pan. Let cool and enjoy!
