What is Champagne Extract?
Champagne extract imparts the flavor of champagne to recipes, without the sugar or alcohol of the real stuff. When using champagne extract, these cookies are perfectly fine for all ages to enjoy!
You can find champagne extract in specialty stores, or on Amazon with this link.
In the prep tips below, I’ll show you what to do if you don’t have champagne extract on hand — or if you want to try our strawberry champagne cookies with the extra pop of real sparkling wine.
The dough for our pink champagne cookies is a simple sugar cookie dough with a few special mix-ins to make them “pop” (see what I did there?)
How to Make Champagne Extract
If you can’t find champagne extract at the store, don’t want to wait to order it, or want a little boozy cookies, you can use real sparkling wine to make your own extract.
- Pour champagne into a medium sauce pan.
- Heat to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the liquid reduces by half.
- Allow to cool completely before adding to cookie batter.
Keep in mind that this will make the cookie a no-go for anyone under 21, as some of the alcohol remains after baking. It will also give the cookies a more tart flavor — though I think the sugar sprinkles on top add the perfect balance.
How to Make Pink Champagne Cookies
First, make your sugar cookie batter:
- Cream butter and sugar in stand mixer on medium speed.
- Add remaining wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, a cup at a time, mixing as you go, until you have a thick sugar cookie batter.
After adding your pink food coloring, your strawberry champagne cookie dough may look reddish. Don’t worry — they will lighten up during baking and look a bright pink with the sprinkles!
Cover the bowl of dough with plastic wrap or a towel and chill for about an hour.
Now it’s time to bake those champagne cookies!
Preheat oven to 350°F and make balls out of the sugar cookie dough.
A cookie scoop like the one above is super handy for making uniformly-sized cookies. However, if you don’t have one you can simply roll the dough into balls by hand that are about the size of a ping-pong ball, or about 1 Tablespoon.
Roll each dough ball into a bowl of pink sprinkles, then place on your prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 9-10 minutes, taking care not to over-bake.
