Pro Tips

  • For an extra festive touch, top your Strawberry Cookies with a drizzle of white chocolate.
  • If you don’t have parchment paper, you can spray your baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray instead.
  • Be careful to not overmix your cookie dough or your cookies may end up too cakey.
  • For an extra pop of flavor, add a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to the cookie dough.
  • I like to cool my cookies on a cooling rack, just make sure that you wait a few minutes to remove from the pan so that they don’t rip. 
  • If you are using a stand mixer to make your batter, make sure that you mix on medium speed. And be very careful to not overmix your dough or you will have a tough batch of cookies.
