Strawberry Dream Cookies

This recipe is from another wordpress blog, vegetarianinvegas, and it’s FABULOUS!  She has pictures, and it’s her original recipe, so go read hers at http://vegetarianinvegas.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/recipe-strawberry-dream-cookies/ .  I’m retyping the recipe to clarify some of the directions, and because I like having a centralized location to search for recipes, rather than just a giant folder of bookmarks that’s hard to search through.

  • strawberries
    • frozen strawberries – 2 c. thawed and chopped (if you’re careful and gentle, can give you white cookies with red spots)
    • fresh strawberries – 2-and-a-bit c. hulled and chopped (will give you pink cookies with red and white spots)
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. plus 1 Tbs sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 c. cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 c. whipping cream
  • 1/2 c. white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F.   Cover baking sheet with foil.

In medium bowl, combine strawberries with 2 Tbs sugar and 1 tsp lemon juice.  Stir well; set aside.

In stand mixer bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 7 Tbs sugar.

Cut in the butter with paddle attachment or pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add cream until dough starts to come together, then add strawberry mixture and white chocolate chips.

Spoon onto baking sheet; bake 10-20 minutes (depending on size of scoops and amount of juice in strawberries) until edges are golden and lift easily from pan.

Fructose-Free: check the label on the white chocolate chips, but I think this recipe can be fructose-free! 🙂
