Remember to not overcook the cookies! These cookies are best soft and gooey, keep an eye on them to get the doneness that is right for you!
When using freeze dried strawberries, I like to crush them slightly before mixing them in. I like how the strawberry powder gets throughout the dough.Print
No, this recipe uses real strawberries and does not use cake mix.
Freeze dried strawberries give the dough a fun pink color that would be great for a valentines day cookie. The pink color comes from the freeze dried strawberry powder.
Fresh strawberries are also great to use. You won't have the same pink dough, but fresh strawberries can sometimes be easier to find.
But freeze dried strawberries and fresh strawberries give the strawberries and cream cookies a unique real strawberry taste unlike other cake mix strawberry cookies.
