Fresh strawberries from the vine are washed and ready to be eaten, but when you have too many, you get creative. This is how these mouth-watering and tasty strawberry cookies were created for a delicious dessert the whole family enjoyed.
Strawberries are just as healthy as they are tasty! While they're great as a raw snack from the fridge, I love adding my freshly picked strawberries to my favorite cookie recipe. I tried this out for the first time a few years ago, and they were instantly a hit in my household.
The first batch of these cookies disappeared in less than 24 hours. Two days later, after returning to work from a 4-day weekend, I decided it was time to make them again before the last of our fresh-picked berries went bad. My dad was here this time and even got to be a taste tester.
Were fresh strawberries used to make Strawberry cookies?
I do not recommend frozen for the following recipes because frozen berries will not provide the correct consistency.
How to make Strawberry Cookies from Scratch:
It was pretty easy. I used my standard Sugar Cookie mix recipe that had been passed down to me from my mother. I added 1-½ cups of fresh strawberries. Blended well and then staring, placing them on the pan for baking.
Please see the recipe further down with more directions.
How to make Strawberry Cookies With Cake Mix:
You’ll need the following: Cake mix (Vanilla cake mix (18.25oz) is the best!), two eggs (size large), and ½ cup of oil (I used vegetable oil). Then 1 ½ cups of sliced strawberries.
Mix the ingredients in a large bowl until smooth before adding the strawberries. Then mix in until evenly incorporated.
Using a spoon, scoop portions of the dough onto prepared cookie sheets two inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly golden on the edges of the cookies.
Allow the cookies to cool on a baking sheet for approximately 3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
What type of flour is best?
I have made them with either bleached white flour or whole wheat flour. Both taste good!
