Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

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! These cookies are a MUST make for spring. Whenever it is strawberry season, we make these cookies. They are delightful!

Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Recipe

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!

  21. 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.

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

    These are cookies that I definitely think are in my future since I love strawberry shortcake!

  27. Sorry about you Mac! These cookies look wonderful – and definitely like strawberry shortcake. My 6 year old would love these as she is a huge Strawberry Shortcake fan…both the dessert and the doll:-)

  28. This recipe is really awesome!Thank you for sharing it with us! I guess instead of strawberries you can use any kind of fruit you have lying around…

  29. I just took these cookies out of the oven and they are so pretty (not as pretty as yours turned out, but it’s ok). I didn’t even wait until they cooled, I’ve already taken a bite and they are so good!

  30. Hi! I saw this recipe and several others on pinterest based on Martha Stewarts recipe. When I made the batter it was so soft that I thought 2/3 heavy cream was too much. I had to add another 1/4 cup of flour. Did you (or anyon else) have this problem? I had to refridgerate it an hour to stiffen it up and they baked out soft like muffin tops not denser like scones. I also added lemon zest to up the lemon flavor & it was perfect.

  31. These look sooooooo yummy… can you use frozen strawberries or different fruit in them? Or even canned fruit? Thanks… Geri

  32. Marg, I used just a few frozen strawberries (ones I’d bought fresh, then froze) to make a full two cups, and it seemed like liquid from them seeped out a lot and resulted in some sort of brown crispy stuff (caramelized sugar, I guess) along the bottoms. So I would definitely make sure they’re super-thawed and super-dry, if you try frozen ones. Good luck!

  33. These look great, I have a lot of Rhubarb I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried putting some in these ? Rhubarb seems to add a lot of moister to muffins I make with it, thought they may to these as well, just wondering.

  34. I’m making these cookies sometime this week. but I was wondering if the dough could be made in advance? I don’t have an oven at the moment, so I was planning on making the dough the night before, chilling in fridge, and then baking them the following morning? Thank you in advance

  35. I was wondering if the dough can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge? I would be making the cookies the following day, so it wouldn’t be stored for long.

  36. Sorry, Two Peas! I hadn’t seen my post, so I re-posted it. I guess my computer was just being a little slow. Thank you for your quick response! ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to baking these delicious cookies!!

    1. I haven’t tried cashew or almond milk, but I am sure it would work. Maybe use vanilla almond milk?
