I’m certain that when desserts are pink, they somehow taste better. I don’t have any hard evidence for this theory, but looking at my dessert choices (such as these Chocolate Chip Beet Cupcakes, Ombre Layer Cake and Pink and Blue(berry) Shortbread Cookies) my taste buds certainly agree. Even savory dishes such as this Goat Cheese Beet Dip just taste better with a vibrant pink hue.
These Soft Almond Sugar Cookies are reminiscent of the large pink cookies from coffee stands. Soft, fluffy and buttery, the almond flavor gives them a pleasant twist. Shaved almonds are sprinkled on top to give a slight crunch. While the red food coloring in the frosting is completely optional, the pink frosting takes these cookies from delicious to delicious and adorable.
