We were given a lot of strawberries and I had to figure out what to do with them so they didn't go bad. So I came up with this recipe. I hope everyone likes it as much as my kids did. I prefer fresh strawberries over strawberry extract because it gives it a more fruitful flavor. But the extract is good as well. You decide.

  • Beat 1 1/2 cups white sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat egg into butter mixture. Add strawberry puree.

  • Stir flour, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt into strawberry mixture with a spoon until flour is completely incorporated into dough.

  • Stir 1/2 cup white sugar and red sugar together in a shallow bowl.

  • Roll dough into walnut-sized balls, roll each ball in red sugar mixture, and place each ball 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Lightly press each dough ball down to flatten.

  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 2 teaspoons strawberry extract for the strawberry puree.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

The recipe is sooo good! And unlike some people, I took the liberty of changing that 1/2 cup of salt to 1/2 tsp of salt instead of leaving a bad review...definitely uncalled for. Read More

This was a very good recipe. I used two tablespoons more puree however in the hopes that it would impart sufficient strawberry flavor. Bang. Read More

This was the best cookie ever! I used 1/2 tsp of salt as suggested and it had the perfect sweet salty combo. It reminds me of cookies I bought from the bakery when I was younger... I ate the whole dozen in a day Read More

Thank you everyone for your reviews. I'm not sure what you are talking about with the 1/2 cup of salt because it says 1/2 teaspoon maybe you looked at the sugar by mistake. I'm glad that most of you liked it and hope more people try it and like it as well. Read More

Very nice chewy cookie. The strawberry flavor was evident but it still tasted like a good quality sugar cookie. I made two changes: I subbed whole-wheat flour for half of the flour called for. If anything that might have made the cookies more difficult to appreciate the texture was perfect. My other change was to refrigerate the dough overnight before putting on the sheets and baking. IMO that is always the way to go w/ cookie dough whether the recipe calls for it or not. Read More

I was hoping for a stronger strawberry flavor but these are really good cookies anyway! I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the strawberry puree. The strawberry is still subtle but the cookie is good. I think next time I will make extra puree and reserve and mix with some confectioners sugar to make a strawberry glaze on top to make the strawberry flavor pop even more. Read More

Admittedly I was a little skeptical when my 7 year old decided he wanted to make strawberry cookies. I imagined a very artificial tasting end result. I was so pleased to find this recipe using fresh strawberries. I was still skeptical as baking with fresh fruit does change it's flavor. I am so pleased with how they turned out! We used frozen strawberries instead of fresh and it was fine. The strawberry taste is subtle but true; not overpowering at all. In fact I think I will add a little extra purée the next time we make these. This recipe is a keeper! Read More
