Strawberry and Cream Cookies

I had been wanting to make this for a while but I kept putting it off because I thought the flavour of a strawberry might be strange inside of cookies. Turns out I was wrong the flavours were great, and the smell was even better.

I am lowkey mad at myself for not adding chocolate covered strawberries on top instead, that would’ve elevated the cookie but anyways enjoy!

Ingredients
Makes: 6

  • for the cookies:
  • 120g unsalted butter

  • 15g freeze dried strawberry powder

  • 140g granulated sugar

  • 40g brown sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

  • 225g plain flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

  • pink food colouring
    (optional)

  • for the whipped cream:
  • 100g cream cheese

  • 150ml double cream

  • 80g granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • plus 6 strawberries for the top

Directions

  • cookies:
  • start by melting the butter then mix this with the freeze dried strawberry powder
  • pour this into a large bowl then whisk in both sugars and the vanilla
  • add in the egg. at this point you can also add in some pink food colouring if you want a brighter colour
  • in a separate bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together
  • add this into the other bowl and mix everything until a dough forms. try not to over mix this
  • create cookie dough balls out of the dough, i like to do mine at around 100g each
  • place these balls onto a tray and leave them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. pre-heat your oven to 180c/350f during this time
  • once the cookie dough balls have chilled, place them onto a large tray, leaving a gap between each one, then bake for around 18 - 20 minutes
  • whipped cream:
  • in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese with a spoon just until it's smooth
  • add this into a larger bowl along with the cream, sugar and vanilla
  • whisk all this together until it becomes thick. leave this in the fridge whiles the cookies cool
  • once the cookies have completely cooled, add some of the cream on top of them and smooth it out. i like to use a piping bag to put the cream on but you can also just use a spoon
  • add the strawberries on top and that's pretty much it!

Notes

  • depending on where you live, freeze dried strawberry powder might be hard to find. i just get mine from amazon, from a brand called honey berry!

    Does this recipe have a strong strawberry flavor? I was thinking about substituting the vanilla with strawberry extract or emulsion.
