Strawberry Cookies

I love cookies, whether they are chocolate chip, macadamia, oatmeal or many of the different varieties we can make or buy (I do prefer homemade, you just can't beat them)

Scroll down for The Recipe

And with a punnet of fresh strawberries on hand, I decided to make

Strawberry Cookies.

And they turned out wonderful, crispy around the outside, chewy in the middle, with the fresh burst of

Strawberry yumminess.


I can't say whether the juice from the strawberries will soften the cookie on the second day
As in my home -- cookies NEVER last that long!

Go on... Bake some Strawberry Cookies.  You know you want to :)

I know they are the new favorite in our home, and what a better way to get my little girls
To eat fruit!

Adapted from,
Makes 24 cookies.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 punnet strawberries (250g, 9oz)
2 tbsp sugar
Preheat the oven to350 f and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Hull the strawberries and slice them. Mix them with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla until smooth and combined.
Add the egg, beating well.
Turn the mixer off, add the flour, baking soda and salt, and beat on a low speed until just incorporated.
Pat the strawberries dry with paper towel and very gently, stir them into the mixture.
Drop tablespoons of the dough onto the baking trays, allowing room for spreading.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking, until the cookies are golden brown.
