Description

Chewy, bendy, just a little crisp on the edges and packed with all natural strawberry flavor. These cookies are so much fun, so unique, and SO DELICIOUS!


Ingredients

Scale

2 sticks butter at room temperature

1 cup granulated

1/2 cup light brown

2 tablespoons liquid glucose

1 egg at room temperature

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/4 cups flour

1 cup crushed freeze dried strawberries

For rolling dough balls:

1 cup granulated sugar


Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter with sugars and liquid glucose until very light and fluffy. This should take about 5 minutes on medium speed.

Next, scrape down sides and bottom of bowl thoroughly with a rubber spatula, then add egg, vanilla, salt, baking powder and baking soda and beat again for about a minute.

Next, add flour and mix until almost completely combined.

Add crushed freeze-dried strawberries and mix until combined. It's nice to not over-mix here because you will have a marbled effect in the finished cookies.

Using a two tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough then roll into white sugar and place onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.

Using a flat bottomed drinking glass or measuring cup, flatten cookies just slightly until they are about 3/4 inch think.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Allow to cool on baking sheets. (but make sure to eat a few while they're still warm!!)
