Special Treats: Strawberry Shortcake cookies Recipe

07 July 04 - Strawberry Shortcake cookies (1)
For the 4th of July, I made some Strawberry Shortcake cookies that are supposed to taste like strawberries and cream (Yummy right?!). The cookies turned out very tasty, but I encountered issues when it comes to the shape and texture of the cookie. My cookies flattened out like pancakes! hahaha, but I think that was my fault. Nevertheless, the cookies were very tasty, nice crispy borders and yummy strawberry flavor!

Recipe: Strawberry Shortcake cookies

  • 12 ounces strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch dice (2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • Sanding sugar, for sprinkling

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 tablespoons granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or rub in with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream until dough starts to come together, then stir in strawberry mixture.
  2. Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment, spacing evenly apart. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, and bake until golden brown, 24 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool. Cookies are best served immediately, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.

I would give these cookies a 6 out of 10. They were very good in taste, but the consistency was not perfect. I would still try them again though with a couple of tweeks here and there to get the shape better. Let me know if any of you try them!
