Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

My go-to recipe when I have extra strawberries in the house!

Yield: 12 cookies

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 10 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugars.
  • Add in the egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix to combine.
  • Add in the remaining dry ingredients, not the strawberries, and mix until the dough begins to form into a ball. Try to fully incorporate the dry ingredients, no lumps in the dough.
  • Fold in the strawberries.
  • Scoop out about 1 & 1/2 tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet and space the cookies out about 2 inches apart just in case they spread while baking.
  • CHILL THE DOUGH for at least 30 minutes to an hour before you bake or else the cookies will spread out while baking.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the oven, the cookies should be just turning golden brown along the edges.
  • Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes, enjoy!
