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.

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…

  1. 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 to bake them for about just shy of 20 minutes I believe.

    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!
