99 Types of Cookies: # 2 Strawberry Pudding Confetti Cookies

These Strawberry Pudding Confetti Cookies are a variation of my Pistachio Pudding Cookies.  My daughter came up with the idea, and after making these she thought they’d be great for a birthday party, which they would!  They are easy, sweet, and chewy.  The sprinkles add festive color and the dough is just barely pink, but you could add food coloring to make it brighter.

The drops of dough look like little balls of strawberry ice cream with sprinkles.

These cookies bake up really soft, so be careful when transferring to a rack to cool.
