Strawberry Cookies

XBD wanted to make strawberry cookies specifically, not strawberry muffins. We made muffins first but then he wanted to make strawberry muffin cookies - putting a cookie on top of a muffin. It didn't come to that but we enjoyed these cookies and shared with neighbors at the playground.

  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.5 t baking powder
  • 1 c fresh strawberries, chopped
  1. In a large bowl, mix the sugar and butter.
  2. Add the egg, vanilla and lemon juice and mix until combined.
  3. In separate bowl, combine flour, salt and powder. Combine dry ingredients with wet.
  4. Fold in the strawberries until just combined.
  5. Place on parchment lined sheet.
  6. Optional: sprinkle with sugar
  7. Bake for 15-18 min.
  8. Cool completely and enjoy. Keep leftovers in airtight container in fridge.
