You may have noticed on my past posts, I've been having tons of fun in my garden this year. One of my best crops so far has been the beets! They are so beautiful when they are harvested! I've pickled some and I have to say that my Pickled Beets recipe is delicious.
While delicious, you can only make so many pickled beets without wanting to branch out. You may remember that I do not love the taste of beets all by themselves, but they are so healthy, I find ways to eat them. (read about it here) So, today I'm sharing with you a great way to sneak these babies into your diet in a way that everyone will love! That's right, in cookies! Chocolate Beet Cookies to be exact!
The beets in these cookies keep them moist and keep these cookies moist, the color is rich and dark and with a shmear of buttercream frosting they are the perfect snack and no one is the wiser that they contain the secret ingredient, beets!
They are good without frosting as well, but I couldn't resist the frosting shmear and a few sprinkles. I based this recipe on our family favorite Fudge Mound Recipe. The batter comes out a bit thinner with the addition of the beets. I increased the flour by a bit, as well as the butter.
