Crazy for Crust

Why should Christmas have all the fun? We love these cookies all year, and this time I’ve made them for spring: Strawberry Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Snowballs - this easy tea cake recipe is flavored with strawberry extract!

You guys, I just can’t help myself. I want to make all the flavors of snowball cookies, all the time. Is that a bad thing? I’ve got so many ideas in my head that, if I’m going to make them all, I better change my blog name to Crazy for Snowballs.

My most popular recipe last year was my Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies. It was such a simple no-brainer recipe for me: make my Mom’s Russian Teacakes and use chocolate chips instead of nuts. Just like that I got chocolate into the cookies and made them nut-free (and, by design, egg-free) all in one swoop.

I started thinking about what would be a good flavor Wedding Cookie for spring. Lemon, obviously, and coconut (I’m sure coming soon) but since Valentine’s Day is this weekend, I thought about pink.

Pink cookies are just so….pretty. And festive. And good for Valentine’s Day, Easter, spring, or JUST BECAUSE I LOVE PINK.

Sorry for the shouting, I really do love pink. (It’s a bit embarrassing at times when I’m at the gym and realize I’m carrying a pink water bottle, pink iPhone, and pink Kindle. And to think until the “great pink and monogram explosion” of 2004, I wouldn’t love pink so much. (True story, remember those monogramed…everything? Purses? Shirts? Jackets? And the letters were ALL pink?)

Anyway, there I go, off on one of my tangents. Let’s reel it back in and talk about Strawberry Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies, mmkay?
