Cookie Carnival: Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

It's time for Cookie Carnival again! I know I haven't participated for a while but I'm BACK! It's the perfect recipe since STRAWBERRIES are in season right now. I love how moist these cookies turned out. Of course, I made some small adjustments to the recipe but they are SO good and the perfect summer cookie recipe!


Ingredients: (3 dozen cookies)

2 c strawberries
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 c + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 c cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 c heavy cream

Prep:

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 Tbsp granulated sugar. Set aside.

2. Place flour, baking powder, salt, remaining sugar and butter in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cream and pulse until dough starts to come together, then add strawberry mixture.

3. Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment or silicon mat, spacing evenly apart.

4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.

What adjustments did you make. I obviously needed help... mine turned out horrible.

So funny we just made these as well. Martha knows best I guess. LOL. We made our subbing mashed bananas for the butter and used fat free half and half for the cream. They were a little soft so we froze them...and haven't looked back. Frozen strawberry shortcake cookies are incredible!

Martha does know best! Although these are more like a scone than a cookie in my book, they still are delicious.

I love the name of your blog! I tend to workout then cook too, although there has been more cooking than working out lately! Your cookies look great.
