Strawberry champagne cookies are such a pretty Valentine’s Day cookie recipe. Coated in pink sugar with a champagne flavor, these cookies are so good.
We love making these for Valentine’s Day, but really you could make these all year round. And trust me, once you taste them you’ll want to! Another great choice is our Valentine Sandwich Cookies and Teddy Bear Oreos.
Strawberry Champagne Cookies
Before you worry that perhaps these champagne cookies aren’t kid friendly, they totally are. There is no actual champagne in these; just champagne extract.
You can usually find this important ingredient at your local grocery store, a craft store like Hobby Lobby, or of course on Amazon.
Making Champagne Cookies
This recipe is not one you can make last minute. The dough needs to be chilled in the fridge for an hour before you roll it in the sugar and bake them. So make sure you plan ahead if you want to make these for Valentine’s Day.
You will also want to make sure you soften your butter first. I have a great tip on how to do this if you’ve forgot to set your butter out. Fill a tall glass with hot water, let it warm the glass, then dump it out and place it over a stick of butter. The heat from the glass with soften the butter! It works great.
These strawberry champagne cookies will be the hit of Valentine’s Day!
