Strawberry Shortcake Cookies


Hey guys!

Today I’m popping over to my friend Glory’s site, Glorious Treats, to spend a little QT over there…


Glory and I have been friends for a few years now…she even did a little guest post over here a while back with these Dreamsicle Cupcakes in Jars.

So when she told me that she’s busy writing a book (yay!) and would need a little help keeping up with her site, I jumped at the chance to help.


I tried to make something super pretty to share with Glory’s readers, but realized that pretty food isn’t necessarily my strong suit.

Anyhow, I made a soft vanilla cookie, frosted it with fresh strawberry buttercream and topped them with a strawberry.  Strawberries make everything prettier, right?


So hop over and check out my recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Cookies.  They are actually a new favorite of mine.

Shocker, I know.


Go on now!  Don’t make me look bad!

I would love to make these strawberry shortcake cookies, but I don’t bake with shortening (that stuff is bad for you!) Can I use all butter?

Oh my goodness. Strawberry shortcake… in cookie form? Perfection and bliss.

Thanks for the links!

I love cute food!


I think these are perfectly pretty! I live with all boys, so anytime I see anything pink I think pretty!! Love the strawberry buttercream idea, my boys would get over the pink factor for that.

I not a big fan of strawberry shortcake however, these look like some mighty fine cookies. I would not turn down strawberry frosting.
