Strawberry Shortcake Cookies



I recently signed up for The Cookie Carnival over at The Clean Plate Club. I thought this was the perfect "club" to join since I love to bake cookies and it was only once a month. The cookie this month was Strawberry Shortcake Cookies by Martha Stewart. I made these for my Father's Day dinner with Tadd's parents. They were a big hit! The cookies were soft and tender. Everyone loved them. They were perfect because they weren't too sweet. I made some homemade whipped cream with my leftover pint of cream and topped the cookies with it.


Strawberry Shortcake Cookies
MARTHA STEWART
(Printable Recipe)

12 ounces strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch dice (2 cups)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
3 ounces (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup heavy cream
Sanding sugar, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 tablespoons granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or rub in with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream until dough starts to come together, then stir in strawberry mixture.

Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment, spacing evenly apart. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, and bake until golden brown, 24 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool. Cookies are best served immediately, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.
