Strawberry Shortcake cookies

With strawberries in season, I’ve been trying to find as many strawberry dessert recipes as possible. I can never resist buying the four-pound box of strawberries, but then I can never eat them all.

I found this recipe for Strawberry Shortcake cookies from Pink Parsley that looked oh-so-pretty. I love how strawberries make desserts look.

When I looked at the recipe, I thought that it looked very similar to a scone recipe. Sure enough, these little cookies taste a lot like scones. They reminded me more of mini scones rather than mini shortcakes. But they still taste good.

  • Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and two tablespoons of granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter to the flour mixture until coarse crumbs are formed. You can also use your fingers. Stir in the heavy cream until the dough starts to come together, then gently fold in strawberries.
