These Strawberries and Cream Cookies are so pretty and easy to prepare! They’re perfectly sweet with fun bites of dried strawberry pieces and white chocolate chips.

I have to say, adding fruit into my cookies isn’t the “norm” around here.

I firmly believe that fruit has no business in dessert.

Well, I USED to believe that was a truth.

 

But really, as long as there is the appropriate amount of sugar and butter added, fruit is TOTALLY acceptable in desserts.

I mean, I do love me a good fruit salad, don’t get me wrong, but it isn’t a substitute for cake.

Got me?

 

So adding these dried strawberries into cookies started out as an experiment…

I couldn’t perfect a cookie with real strawberries baked in..I tried…and didn’t get the results I was looking for.

 

But DRIED strawberries are a different story.

They are the perfect chewy, sweet addition to a cookie…and I even found myself wishing I added more to the batter.

Am I a changed woman or what?

 

How to Make Strawberries and Cream Cookies

So let’s talk about these cookies that you need in your face now.

And I mean it..you need these.  I am a little obsessed with them.

The dough is a fairly straightforward one, but I played around with some of the ratios of ingredients and believe I came up with the most PERFECT recipe for a chewy, thick cookie.  NO cornstarch or chilling needed.

AND I found that even 3 days later they tasted perfect.  Pound it!

 

Start with your dried strawberries…NOT freeze dried, folks…just dried.

They are chewy and sweet, a little like a gummy.  I found them in the bulk section of my supermarket, but I’ve seen them at Target near the raisins and all.

(Here’s a link on amazon)

Anyhow, I chopped them up into smaller bits.

 

I also used by beloved mini white chocolate chips…but you could absolutely use regular sized white chips.

I mixed those into the batter.

Now, the batter itself is simple..but I used 1 egg and a yolk to help with the chewy consistency and I also used baking soda AND baking powder.  The combination of the two makes these cookies the perfect height and consistency!

I am actually going to try this base dough for a regular chocolate chip cookie base.  Can’t wait!

 

I placed a few chips and strawberries on top of my dough scoops to make ’em purty…

I just made these for my husband. I think I like them more than he does but he is not a huge strawberry fan unless it’s the artificial strawberry flavor type stuff. I did modify the recipe which was risky since I am more a cook than a baker but it turned out pretty tasty, not as pretty as yours but tasty. I used half white sugar and half splenda, I also used oat flour instead of all purpose. I also used 3/4 cup of home dehydrated strawberries and half a cup or so sugar-free chocolate chips. I also needed… Read more »

Me again, cookies came out and taste really really good, but have a scone/brownie-ish quality. The error lies with me, I assume the same for the other commenters. I used Trader Joe’s freeze dried strawberries, without reading the original post carefully enough. My apologies for blaming a perfectly fine recipe!

I just made these and had the same issue as a few others with a super dry stiff dough. I actually had to flatten the domes down with a large spoon during cooking. Maybe this recipe needs to be retested since others are having this issue? Bummer recipe.

Stupid phone, LOL, I made a batch of these using cranberries. OMG, these were way too sweet! I was spitting them out! I would use half as much brown sugar for this batch.

Am going to have to try these! I can say, that the VERY best dried strawberries are from Sosios Produce at Pike’s Market in Seattle. Seriously, they are like crack! Once you try them you can’t stop. They are pricey, but so good and they last forever. I tried the Target ones and some others, and nothing compares. Sosios dried strawberries are super famous, so you can’t go wrong with them.Good news is Sosio’s will ship them. Here’s their website: http://www.sosiosproduce.com. Hope this info is useful! 🙂

Hi Shelly,
In the recipe you didn’t say what type of flour to use. I pretty much always use self rising, would that be fine or should I stick with all purpose?

California Strawberries

We love these! Sharing!

I just made these and they are delicious! I didn’t have any dried strawberries and didn’t have time to dry my fresh strawberries so I used craisins. I made them small so I could eat more of them without guilt….. SO GOOD!

Laura

Yes, yes, YES about fruit not being dessert! And yes, yes, YES to these cookies! It IS all about the sugar and fat and well yeah, dessert should not be good for you. 😉 These look awesome. I was planning a cookie with dried strawberries, but I am afraid I may need to settle for dried blueberries. Maybe the local grocery store will surprise me. but I doubt it. So I am, in addition to in agreement with you and craving your cookies, also jealous. 🙂

Hi Shelly,
I just happened on to your blog and saw this recipe. I knew I wanted to try it
right away. I just finished and the cookies turned out perfect! Such an easy recipe!
My hubs loves strawberries so they will be a part of his Valentine’s Day.

Thank you for sharing,

I made these cookies today and found the dough to be very dry/stiff. I followed directions & amounts as instructed, but when I rolled them into balls and put them in the oven they stayed as a ball! I then proceeded to flatten the remaining balls before putting in the oven. They tasted good but did not change shape at all. Any suggestions as to why?

Kristina

I had the same problem today, and I didn’t roll mine…I just used a spoon. I wonder if it’s a humidity level thing. In any case, pressing them with a fork, like you would with a peanut butter cookie, worked just as well.

I just made something very similar. I love those dried strawberries! Great baking minds think alike, right? (I love how that phrase lets me say we’re awesome in such a socially acceptable way.)

Shashi @ RunninSrilankan

Dried strawberries I have not heard of before – I sure need to get my hands on some as these cookies sound all sorts of amazing!

Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts

These look perfect! Love the mini white chocolate chips!!

Katie @ Butterlust Blog

Coming from a girl who picks all of the freeze dried strawberries out of her Special K + Berries, I’m all over these cookies. And to colors are so perfect for Valentine’s!

Rebecca @ Dorm Room Baker

Chewy cookies without the chill time are my favorites! I’ve never seen dried strawberries used in a cookie before, but it’s a great idea. Plus you can’t go wrong with anything that has a good amount of white chocolate!

annie @ chase that i love

I love how pretty the strawberries make the cookies look! Like something out of a picture book, almost.(strike the almost. this would totally be in a book.) I can just taste that white-chocolate strawberry now. Super.

Coco in the Kitchen

Love these li’l guys. Very inventive.
Love dried strawberries. They’re better than gummy candy.
Dried kiwis, too.

Becca @ Crumbs

Such an original idea, these look divine!

Cassie

I don’t mind fruit in my cookies, especially when the fruit is alongside white chocolate chips!

Sommer @ASpicyPerspective

This are Look so yummy! Melt in my mouth good!
