Cookie Carnival: Strawberry Shortcake Cookies


This month, the Cookie Carnival bakers made Strawberry Shortcake Cookies from Martha Stewart's site.

These "cookies" were really sweetened little biscuits with chunks of strawberry scattered throughout.

Mmm, they were so GOOD! I will definitely make these again. The kids (normally chocolate chip cookie snobs) were scarfing them down faster than me.

The directions say they are best the day they are made, and I agree. By the second day they were headed toward soggy land.

They were a little strange to make up, not like your typical cookie dough. They were somewhat crumbly before adding the strawberries, but once the strawberries were in, they moistened the dough and it came together.

Here they are before baking.



OK, over and out! See you next month.

I've been looking at these delightful cookies pop up all over this month and they look so fabulous. It's great that you and your kids really enjoyed these and the chocolate chip has a little bit of new competition.

They are gorgeous! I have never had cookies with bits of strawberries in them.

these look delicious! I made them too but used candied strawberries. I have to try them with fresh ones though.

I couldn't get my kids to try them, but that was fine. I loved them and only a few made it to day 2 where they were eaten with great enjoyment!

I thought they were kind of like a scone. They were so good! And 2 of my kids loved them, my girl, not so much. She IS a chocolate chip cookie snob!

I enjoyed these a lot too, but definitely more like a mini scone than a traditional cookie.
