Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

We had a death in the family this week-our Mac died:( Luckily, we were able to back everything up before the crash, but I am without my computer for a few days. Our Mac is in the shop getting a new hard drive. I hope it is fixed soon because I am lost without it! On a brighter note-I made Strawberry Shortcake cookies. These cookies have been on my “to do” list for quite awhile. Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite desserts and you all know I love cookies-so I had to make these cookies. I love it when two desserts come together!

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies on If you like strawberry shortcake, you will LOVE these cookies!

The cookies are made with heavy cream and have fresh diced strawberries in the dough. All of the goodness of strawberry shortcake, but in cookie form. These cookies remind me more of a scone. They are light, fluffy, and tender. The juicy strawberries add a nice burst of flavor. The cookies are best eaten the day they are made, but Josh enjoyed a few for breakfast the next day and he had no complaints:)

If you love Strawberry Shortcake, you will love these Strawberry Shortcake cookies! They taste just like the classic dessert, but they are portable. They are good as is, but you can serve them with vanilla ice cream if you want to go all out! Enjoy!

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Cook Time: 22-25 minutes


2 cups diced fresh strawberries
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
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup heavy cream
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. 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.

3. Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet, spacing evenly apart. Sprinkle cookies with turbinado sugar, and bake until golden brown, about 22 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.

Note-Cookies are best served immediately, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.

    I’ve been wanting to make these for so long but never have because I’ve never found an opportunity to have them all eaten immediately, so it’s good to know that they are still okay the next morning! They look amazing!

    Eek computer deaths are always sad events. At least you got your data still. These cookies look incredible! I love berries in all sort of baked goods but have never tried them in a cookie.

    Have you tried other berries or fruit in cookies? Now I’m dreaming of all sort of possibilities.

  33. Tres Delicious — August 21, 2011 @ 9:39 am

    I just did some reminiscing with this that I’ve got a few years back. It’s really a wonderful creation

  34. I made these a while back and added white chocolate to them. They are very good.

  35. Sues — August 21, 2011 @ 12:34 pm

    I’ve made this recipe a bunch of times and absolutely love it!! Your cookies are so beautiful :)

  37. Esi — August 21, 2011 @ 4:13 pm

    I only like the shortcake and strawberry part of shortcake so this is great for me!

  38. Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles — August 21, 2011 @ 6:00 pm

    I vote for strawberry EVERYTHING this time of year!

  39. Pamc — August 21, 2011 @ 10:10 pm
