Champagne Cookies


Champagne Cookies
Got Champagne? Then make some cookies! That's what I did with some leftover pink champagne from New Years Eve! These cookies taste very similar to a sweet bread...not too sweet, nice and soft with slightly crunchy edges. And I love how pretty they look! These cookies taste great when eaten with a glass of champagne...or a cup of coffee! You can use any champagne, but I suggest using a not so dry one so that the cookies have some sweetness.

I found this recipe **here** and have made them a few times per my families request!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup multicolored candy sprinkles
1/2 cup shortening or butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup champagne
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 drops red food coloring, or as needed


DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat the shortening and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until the mixture is light and creamy. Pour in the champagne, and mix for about 1 minute on low speed. Mixture will be lumpy. Mix in the baking powder, and stir in flour to make a smooth dough. Stir in red food coloring by drops until the mixture is desired shade of pink.
Scoop the dough with a tablespoon measure melon baller and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, leaving room between each cookie because the cookies will spread. Add sprinkles.
Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the cookies are very lightly browned and the cookies are crisp, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cookies cool completely before moving them to a serving platter or container.
When cooled, cookies will be soft with slightly crunchy edges. These cookies are not very sweet. They are similar to a sweet bread. Perfect with a glass of champagne or a cup of coffee/tea.

Makes about 20-24 cookies.

  1. These look festive and light - I think we have some champagne in the fridge right now. Since we never drink the whole thing, I think I will use some prior to drinking! :)
