I’ve always wanted to try strawberry cookies. Freeze-dried strawberries are perfect with creamy white chocolate in these summery tasting cookies.
Strawberry-White Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
7 oz. white chocolate, chopped (I used one box of Baker’s white chocolate)
1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
Beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture in several additions; mix well. Fold in the strawberries and the white chocolate.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a well greased cookie sheet. (I lined my sheets with parchment paper.) Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and let cool on a wire rack.
Store in an airtight container. Makes 2 1/2-3 dozen cookies.
