Strawberry Cookies

I was so pleasantly surprised by these blueberry cookies, that I thought I would try the same idea out with some different fruit – strawberries!

They were yummy, kind of like strawberry pie, kind of like strawberry crumble, with the combination of the crisp cookie and the soft baked strawberries.

My friend came over the evening I baked them and ate them all up! They’re nice and refreshing too, because of the bursts of fresh strawberries.

The strawberries release their juices though, which makes them go a bit soft on the second day. So stick to a small batch and eat them all fresh from the oven!

Adapted from David Lebovitz’s Ready for Dessert.

11og unsalted butter, softened (1/2 cup, 4 oz)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 punnet strawberries (250g, 9 oz)
2 tbsp sugar

Preheat the oven to 180 C and like 2 trays with baking paper.

Hull the strawberries and slice them. Mix them with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla until smooth and combined.

Add the egg, beating well.

Turn the mixer off, add the flour, baking soda and salt, and beat on a low speed until just incorporated.

Pat the strawberries dry with paper towel and very gently, stir them into the mixture.

Drop tablespoons of the dough onto the baking trays, allowing room for spreading.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking, until the cookies are deeply golden. Makes 24 cookies.

    Yum!! The cookies look so yummy. I’m concerned about not being able to preserve the crunchyness. Someone suggested to use dried strawberry to avoid strawberry juice spoiling the cookies. Is that true? Do you think it will taste good too with dried strawberry?

    How do u hull a strawberry

  23. My daughter decided she wanted to make strawberry & chocolate cookies and having found several disappointing recipes that call for “strawberry box cake?!” I was delighted to find your bog! We added chocolate chunks to your recipe and they were a great success! Thank you x
    p.s. I have had a lot of fun exploring your blog and I think that nutella-stuffed nutella cookies could well be next on the list to try :-)

    Can you use self-raising flour instead of plain flour and baking soda?

    • Hi. I stay away from self raising flour as much as possible. You have no control as to the quantity of leavening in the flour and it could give you puffy, airy cookies. Also, self raising flour is made with baking powder (not baking soda) which again, will give you a different result. Best to stick to the recipe :-) good luck!

  27. These always come out very soft for me. I padded down the strawberries and followed the recipe exactly, but it’s still very soft and they fall apart easily. Other than that, they’re amazing!

  28. are they supposed to look kind off goey when they are in the oven?
