Springtime Chocolate Chip Cookies

A festive cookie to welcome spring

Springtime Cookies

Happy Spring everyone! I whipped these cookies up the other day when I was short on time, but still wanted to make something cheery and fun. (These also doubled as St. Patrick’s Day cookies ;) )

Springtime Cookies

These are just a simple chocolate chip cookie with some added food coloring. Another color like blue would also look great for these. I’m not a fan of artificial colorings, but sometimes it’s nice to have something fun. These are studded with Nestle Toll House Springtime Morsels.

When I made theĀ Red Velvet Pound Cake, I toyed with dyeing the cake with beet juice, but kept forgetting to grab a can at the store. Have you ever dabbled with natural food coloring? How did it turn out?

Hope you get a chance to try these cookies and are beginning to see some signs of spring!
