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!
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
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!!)
