Heart Beet Cookies

What better way to show your love for your sweetie this Valentine’s Day than with a batch of Heart Beet Cookies? I made these for the most recent Iron Chef Dinner and thought it might be appropriate to share the recipe today, on Valentine’s Day. The cookie is a spin on a classic chocolate chip cookie. The color and heart shape won me over at first sight, but after a few bites, I also enjoyed their unique, earthy flavor.

Heart Beet Cookies (makes 2 dozen cookies)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup pureed roasted beets
2 tablespoons  canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a seperate small bowl, stir together the beets, vanilla and oil. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Mix in the chocolate chips. Spoon the dough by the teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a drinking glass and cut into heart shapes using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter. Bake 10-12 minutes.
