Pink Milk Cookies

Anyone that knows Madison knows that she does not like chocolate
at ALL. 

Since so many desserts - especially cookies- contain chocolate 
I'm always on the lookout for yummy non-chocolate cookie recipes. 

When I saw this recipe for Strawberry Milk Chipsters recently on Picky Palate, 
I knew I had to make them for her. 

I made them one afternoon when her friend Katie was over and 
to say they loved them in a HUGE understatement. 
They are super easy to mix up and are a super moist, yummy strawberry cookie. 

2 sticks softened butter
1/2 Cup strawberry milk Powder, Nestles
3/4 Cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1-2 drops red food coloring
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 oz bag White Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  With electric mixer beat the butter, strawberry milk and brown sugar until well combined.  Place eggs into a bowl and whisk in 1-2 drops of food coloring.  Pour into mixer along with vanilla and beat until combined, about 30 seconds.   Place four, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix to combine then slowly add to wet ingredients along with white chips.  Mix on low until just combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.  Bake for 8-10 minute or until edges just start to brown.  Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
