Hope today is full of love, hearts, and sweet things of all sorts...
G's sweet preschool class includes a student with a food dye allergy. I love a good challenge! A little leftover beet juice from a jar of canned beets and the white dye I mixed up went from plain to pretty:
And then on to the cookies:
Naturally Pretty in Pink Frosting
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 -2 cups confectioners sugar or more
1 tablespoon beet juice
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave on low for 30 seconds. Add the vanilla. Stir well.
Add 1 cup of the confectioners sugar. Stir. Add more sugar until the desired consistency is reached.
Add 1 teaspoon of the beet juice. Add more to increase the intensity of the frosting.
You may need to add a bit more sugar after the beet juice to return the consistency back to the desired thickness.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups frosting.
Life is sweet,
