I thought this recipe sounded very interesting and was anxious to try it. I was VERY disappointed. The cookies are not a pretty pink color. Instead, they have a dirty look and they spread out way too much. To me, they were a big waste of strawberries and pecans. The taste was just so-so besides being very unattractive. I have a restaurant and I make cookies to set out on the counter as an impulse purchase and not one person bought them. That's the first time that's ever happened.

I was a little worried trying this recipe, given the bad reviews, but thankfully, the cookies came out great! I had more than a pint of strawberries, so pureed them all, and used roughly a cup of strawberry puree. I also substituted chocolate chips instead of the pecans. The cookies were a lovely pink colour, and weren't too runny, though a little on the cake-y side. Overall though, they came out great!


These cookies came out nothing like I expected. I was very disappointed. I decided not to give them away for valentines day as I had hoped. The recipe was easy but the color was not attractive and the seeds from the berries added an unwelcome texture. I do not recommend this recipe.
