Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and unfortunately too many of us have either been affected by it or know someone who has been. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an international event that is supported by all major breast cancer groups to help raise awareness on the disease and to raise funds for continuing research to find the cure for cancer. I am fortunate enough to not have been affected by the disease but unfortunately I do know people who have, including my grandmother who at age 88 went through chemo and beat this disease. One way to support the cause is to raise money  and what better way than through a bake sale. As a person who is addicted to baking, I stumbled upon this recipe and will definitely be making these because they are fun and when selling them, support a great cause.

Pink Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookies:

  1. 1 package Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
  2. 1 stick of butter
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I recommed using Nestle Tollhouse)
  5. Pink food coloring
  1. Beattogether butter, cookie mix and egg according to directions on the package in an electric mixer. 
  2. Add in pink food coloring until you have achieved desired color. Make sure to mix well so that none of the dough is left uncolored. Using a wooden spoon, stir in chocolate chips until incorporated throughout.
  3. Form dough into 2" inch balls and place onto an ungreased, nonstick cookie sheet. Press down lightly on tops of the cookies to ensure your cookies come out flat.
  4. Bake in a preaheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. If using a Silpat make sure to add 2 minutes to baking time. ENJOY!
