Make Cookies With Strawberries
June 15, 2015 4 Comments
Snack Girl knows you are all eating strawberries. The last batch I bought was incredible!
When I lived in San Francisco (and was significantly more wealthy than I am now), I bought organic strawberries for my two year old for an astronomical price. I made the mistake of letting him near the basket and before I knew it, they were gone and there was a little boy smeared with expensive strawberry juice.
I learned my lesson and I now hide the strawberries from my children ☺
These cookies are pretty much divine. I love the idea of strawberries in cookies because I love strawberries in pretty much everything. These will remind you of those jam stuffed cookies that you eat at the holidays.
I used Greek yogurt instead of butter and it works really well. The sourness of the yogurt is offset by the sweetness of the berries.
Give these a try with your next quart of strawberries (if you can keep someone from eating them all).
